Kadikoy History

Kadikoy History

Around 1000 BC, a village  was established by the Phoenicians in this area; this later was to became a Greek colony. The residental areas of this town extended to Moda. At this time, the name of the city was changed from Charcedeon to Chalcedeon.

Money was coined in the name of the city of Chalcedon, but it became a less popular place to live in the 7th century BC because of the quickly growing Greek town on teh oppisite side. This city was Byzantion, which would become Constantinople or New Rome 1000 years later. According to the historian Herodot, the Oracle of Delphi called Chalcedon “the Land of the Blind,” referring the people living on the shore oppisite Byzantion, as the position on the Historic Peninsula was so much more advantageous.

An important event in the history of Christianity took place in this area. It was the Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon in 451 AD, which made the decision to establish a patriarchate in Constantinople. The area was attecked by armies from the Umayyad, Abbasid and Sassanid empires. It was captured by the Turks in 1080. The invaders under the command of Kutalmışoğlu Süleyman Bey, who made the city of İznik thier capital, added this area to the land of the Seljuk dynasty. Eventually, in the 14th century, Chalcedon met it ne owners, the Ottoman Empire. The glory of the Ottomans during the reign of Orhan Gazi in 1331 against the Byzantine Emperor transformed Chalcedon into Ottoman territory. Afterwards, some followers of Geyikli Baba in Bursa, Gözcü Baba in Göztepe, Eren Baba in Erenköy, Kartal Baba in Kartal, and Sarı Gazi in Sarıgazi moved the Kadikoy and settled here and started to conquer the hearts of the locals. The current name of Kadikoy was adopted after this conquest. After the conquest of Canstantinople, Sultan Mehmed II appointed Hızır Bey Çelebi as the qadi (judge) of Istanbul and assigned him to this area and the surrounding areas. This was when the district began to be called “Kadı Köyü” (Village of the Judge). Later the name of the city became Kadikoy. In the 19th century, there was an increase in the density of the city’s population and this region became a comapolitan city. The main turning point for Kadikoy started in the middle of the 19th century. From this period, ferry transportation started between Eminönü and Kadikoy. The opening of the Haydarpaşa- İzmit railway was another important development.
