Istanbul Yali or Waterside Houses

Istanbul Yali or Waterside Houses
These very elegant wooden mansions (yalıs) graced the water-sides of the Bosphorus and boats could dock at their landing platforms; the first one was built in the early 18th century during the “Tulip Era” and most of the others dated from the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was unfortunate that with the ever increasing population demands the land value along the Bosphorus increased so much that many of the yalıs were demolished or burnt down, some in dubious circumstances and the remaining mansions have been dubbed by the locals as “the pearls of the Bosphorus”.
