Ihlamur pavilion

The pavilion, which is surrounded by high walls to protect it from the noise of the surroundings, cocnsists of two mansions situated in an area known as Ihlamur Mesiresi. This area is composed of three sections: the Ihlamur Neighboorhood with Pool, the Muhabbet Garden and Hacı Hüseyin Vineyards; this later became an imperial garden during the reign of Sultan Ahmed III (1703-1730). Particuarly Sultan Abdulmecid liked this area. Here, he would frequently rest and entertain his guests, including the famous French poet Lamartine. Afterwards, in place of the simple and modest pavililon, the sultan had the present-day structures buily here between 1849 and 1885.

The mansions were designed by the architect of Dolmabahçe  Palace Nikogoz Balyan. Merasim Mansion, another of the buildigs, was intented to be used for officcial ceremonies, while the maiyet Mansion was where the sultan’s entourage and, on occasion, his family stayed. Both of these mansions were known as the Ihlamur Pavilion.

Today the Ihlamur Pavilion is connected to the Department of National Palaces. As with all the palaces and pavilions., any profit from the restaurants and cafes is directed into renovation and restoration.
