  • ESMA SULTAN

    Istanbul's historical gem offering outstanding weddings and event

HISTORY

Taking its name after Esma Sultan, the daughter of the 32nd Ottoman ruler, Sultan Abdülaziz, the historic mansion has bore witness to a number of historic events and figures over time.

Sultan Abdülaziz’s daughter Esma Sultan was born at the Dolmabahçe Palace in 1873. When she was 3 years old, her father was forced to step down from the throne, and Esma Sultan was sent to the Harem in Abdülhamit’s Yıldız Palace. At the age of 16, she was married to Circassian Mehmet Paşa, an important political figure of the time, in the Ortaköy Mosque situated beside the mansion. The mansion was given to Esma Sultan as a wedding present.
