Kandilli Istanbul

Kandilli Istanbul

Where the Kandilli name drives from

There are a various reasons as to how Kandilli came by its name; two of them refer to Sultan Murad IV who is believed to have built a palace that was encircled by oil lamps or from the fact that he hung decorative lamps from a cypress tree.
 Another story relates to a priest wanting to be in the sultan’s favour and would place candles in his garden every evening; although the likeliest is to have come from either the lamps that were placed at Kandilli Point and created an ancient form of lighthouse or from the many candle makers that set up their work shops in the area.  

Kucuksu River

What you see today as the Küçüksu River was once joined with the Goksu River at nearby Anadolu Hisari or Anatolian Fortress and known as “The Sweet Waters of Asia” on which revellers in the 18th century would gather en masse. There are boats that cruise on this river.

Getting to Kandilli

There is a limited ferry service that links Kandilli with Cengelkoy , Istinye and places in between (www.ido.com.tr). It’s a short stroll to Kucuksu Mansion from Kandilli or from the Anadolu Hisari ( or Anatolian Fortress ) ferry stop; you can also take the buses in the 15 series that run from in front of the Uskudar ferry terminal.
