Hagia Irene or Hagia Eirene ("Holy Peace", Turkish: Aya İrini), often erroneously rendered in English as St Irene, is a former Eastern Orthodox church located in the outer courtyard of Topkapı Palace in Istanbul. It is open as a museum every day except Monday but requires special permission for admission.

History
Hagia Irene Monument is the only extant church from Byzantine with an atrium. The structure consists of an atrium, a narthex with three naves and an abscissa. Since Hagia Irene Church had not been transformed into a mosque after the conquest (1453), there had not been any modifications made in and out of the structure. The first Ottoman Museum had been established in Hagia Irene Church in 1846, which had been used as Military store with the pieces collected by Damat Ferit Pasha, one of the Armory marshals.

The pieces collected had been organized under two sections, namely the Collection of Ancient Pieces (Mecmua-i Asar-ı Atika) and the Collection of Armament (Mecmua-i Esliha-i Atika); and denominated as Imperial Museum (Müze-i Hümayun). The museum was moved to Tiled Pavilion (Çinili Köşk) in 1875 due to insufficient physical space. The church had been converted into storage and used as a military museum for a while in 1908. After an idle period, the building has become an organizational unit of Hagia Sophia museum.

Church
The building reputedly stands on the site of a pre-Christian temple. It ranks, in fact, as the first church built in Constantinople. Roman emperor Constantine I commissioned the first Hagia Irene church in the 4th century. From May to July 381 the First Council of Constantinople took place in the church. It was burned down during the Nika revolt in 532. Emperor Justinian I had the church restored in 548. It served as the church of the Patriarchate before Hagia Sophia was completed in 537.

Heavily damaged by an earthquake in the 8th century, it dates in its present form largely from the repairs made at that time. The Emperor Constantine V ordered the restorations and had its interior decorated with mosaics and frescoes.

Hagia Irene is the only example of a Byzantine church in the city which retains its original atrium. A great cross in the half-dome above the main narthex, where the image of the Pantocrator or Theotokos was usually placed in Byzantine tradition, is a unique vestige of the Iconoclastic art; presumably it replaced earlier decoration.

The church was enlarged during the 11th and 12th centuries. The church measures 100 m × 32 m. It has the typical form of a Roman basilica, consisting of a nave and two aisles, divided by columns and pillars. It comprises a main space, a narthex, galleries and an atrium. The dome is 15 m wide and 35 m high and has twenty windows.

Entering the church, one descends along a stone ramp to the level of the interior. At the end of the ramp, there is the rear of the church which gives the idea of a basilica, but an unusual type. The eastern dome is supported by four great arches. In this church, the plan is the transition of a pure domed basilica into a Greek-cross plan church.

The apse is a semicircular semidomed above and there are seats for the clergy. In the semidome, there is an ancient mosaic of a simple cross in a black border.  At the west, a Turkish wooden staircase leads to the galleries. The galleries and the church was used as an arsenal during the Ottoman Era.

Arsenal
Ottoman helmet, with markings of Saint-Irene arsenal, Constantinople, circa 1520. Musée de l'Armée. After the conquest of Constantinople in 1453 by Mehmed II, the church was enclosed inside the walls of the Topkapı palace. The Janissaries used the church as an armoury. It was also used as a warehouse for war booty.

During the reign of Sultan Ahmet III (1703-1730) it was converted into a weapons museum. It was repaired by Field Marshal Ahmed Fethi Pasha in 1846 and became the first Turkish museum. It was used as the Military Museum from 1908 until 1978 when it was turned over to the Turkish Ministry of Culture.

Concert hall
Today, the museum serves mainly as a concert hall for classical music performances, due to its extraordinary acoustic characteristics and impressive atmosphere. Most of the concerts of the Istanbul International Music Festival have been held here every summer since 1980.

Today, Hagia Eirene hosts Istanbul Art, Cultural and Music Festivals and Istanbul Biennials. Many of the concerts of the Istanbul International Music Festival have been held here every summer since 1980. It is open to public only in festival, concert and biennal times.

Museum For History Of Science And Technology In Islam photo islamscience_museum116.jpg

PHOTOGRAPHS ALBUM

The Museum, which was opened in May 24, 2008, is located in the Gülhane Park (Rose Garden), in one of the most beautiful areas of Istanbul. It extends over 3500 square meters along the old palace wall, on the former stables of the Sultan's Has Ahırlar.

In front of the entrance, the visitor encounters a large globe, which is a reconstruction of one of the most important achievements of the Islamic scientific tradition. The map on the globe was constructed by order of Caliph al-Ma'mun (who reigned from 198-218 H./813-833 CE.). Using a globular projection, the map displays, with surprising accuracy. the geography of the part of the world which was known at that time.

The discovery, historical reconstruction and presentation of the Ma'mun globe, as well as the other artefacts displayed in the museum, are the work of Professor Fuat Sezgin, who in 1982 founded the Institute for the History of Arabic-Islamic Science at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt/ Main.

Decades of intensive research in the history of Arabic-Islamic manuscripts were necessary as a preparation for the creation of the wealth of objects in the museum. Visitors to the museum can obtain a unique insight in the Islamic scientific tradition by looking at the details of the exact replicas of the scientific and technical achievements from the ninth through the seventeenth centuries. The Istanbul museum is unique in the world, because it enables the visitor to see with his own eyes the evolution of the different scientific branches in Islamic civilization.

The systematic presentation of objects from astronomy, geography, nautics, time measurement, geometry, optics, medicine, chemistry, mineralogy, physics, technics, architecture and military techniques, shows how crucial discoveries were made in Islamic civilization and were transmitted in different ways to Europe, where they were adopted, assimilated, and altered. Thus the history of science appears to the visitor as a continuous flow. This is especially clear where Arabic-Islamic innovations are displayed side by side with medieval and later European adaptations.

The most important achievements of Islamic civilization are visualized and elucidated by accompanying explanatory texts in different languages. Fortunately, the Istanbul Museum for History of Science and Technology in Islam does not follow the modern tendency to explain complicated displays by only a few lines of text. On the contrary, the visitor is invited to take time, in order to fathom the multi-faceted panorama of the history of the different sciences.

After a visit to the museum, the visitor will be motivated to deepen his study of the fascinating world of science and technology in Islamic civilization. For this purpose, a detailed catalogue of the museum in five well-illustrated volumes, has been composed by Professor Sezgin. The volumes are available in German and French and since 2007 also in Turkish.

The Istanbul Museum for the History of Science and Technology in Islam is especially attractive because of its aesthetics, the didactics of its scientific expositions, and the synergy between the visual experience and the learning process on the part of the visitor. Thus, Istanbul has been enriched by another bridge between East and West, which concerns the deep historical relationships of the scientific traditions in Eastern and Western cultures. Istanbul, European Capital of Cultures in 2010, extends a warm welcome to all visitors.

The Museum is a product of decades of intensive research, discovery, reconstruction and presentation of artefacts recorded in Arabic-Islamic manuscripts by the renowned science historian Professor Fuat Sezgin. The Museum houses a wealth of objects and exact replicas recording scientific and technical achievements from the ninth through the seventeenth centuries in astronomy, geography, navigation, time measurement, geometry, optics, medicine, chemistry, minerology, physics, architecture and military techniques.

The collection in the Museum is unique in the world enabling visitors to experience the evolution of different scientific disciplines in retrospect through the systematic presentation of objects, and showing crucial discoveries invented in Islamic civilization and transmitted in different ways to Europe, where they were adopted, assimilated, and altered. Thus the history of science appears to the visitor as a continuous flow, especially where Arabic-Islamic innovations are displayed side by side with medieval and later European adaptations.

THE HAGIA SOPHIA IMARET / CARPET MUSEUM

Sultanahmet, Fatih - Istanbul - Turkey

GPS : 41°00'31.6"N 28°58'51.5"E / 41.008778, 28.980972

Hagi Sophia Imaret / Carpet Museum photo ayasofyascarpet_museum119.jpg

PHOTOGRAPHS ALBUM

The imaret is a charitable institution built to meet the daily food needs of medrasah students, travelers and guests. The Hagia Sophia Imaret was built in Hegira 1152 (1742-1743) by Sultan Mahmut I on the northeastern side of Hagia Sophia. On the eastern side of the Imaret is the Bab-ı Hümâyun (Imperial Gate) of Topkapı Palace and on the southeastern side is the  Sultan Ahmet II Fountain. The building stretches adjacently to the northern façade of the Hagia Sophie mosque.

The Imaret consists of three sections - the dining hall (me’kel), the kitchen (aşhane) and the bakery (fodlahane). Its walls were built using alternating stone and brick. The long, narrow area extending westwards is the dining hall; the other two areas that follow are the kitchen and the bakery. The entrance is through doors that open out into the courtyard.

The completely detached three-story building has two gates - one at the front and another at the back. The most spectacular of these gates is the large monumental gate that faces the Ahmet III Fountain. The gate is one of the most beautiful examples of Baroque style in Istanbul.

Decorations under the eaves were replaced during a renovation. The sulus-style inscriptions on the gates of the imaret were made by Beşir Ağa a.k.a ‘Morali,’ who is referred to by his titles, Chief Harem Eunuch or Treasurer, and the poems were written by one of the poets of the era Nimetullah Effendi.

Standing between the imaret’s courtyard and Hagia Sophie is the Byzantine-constructed Skeuophylakion - the Treasury building. The İmaret building was restored in 1777, 1871, 1884 and 1893. After 1920, it served as the archive of the General Directorate of Foundations. A comprehensive restoration was carried out in 2006 and 2007, while museum merchandising work was conducted in 2010.

CARPET MUSEUM

Driven by its mission to make works of art that are Turkish cultural assets available to future generations, the Turkish Directorate General of Foundations opened the Carpet Museum on April 13, 1979 in the Sultan’s Pavilion of the Sultanahmet Mosque.

As part of the project of the General Directorate of Foundations to reorganize museums, it was decided to transform the Hagia Sophia Imaret into the Carpet Museum. Undergoing thorough renovation in 2006-2007, the museum was fitted with a state-of-the-art Museum Display System in 2010, and was reopened in 2013 as the Directorate of Foundations Carpet Museum.

Designed to preserve the works at the museum and make them accessible to future generations, the museum was equipped with a number of features. Wall-type modular display cabinets with laminated safety glass, UV and humidity control, and electronic doors that can be opened only with passwords, museum-compatible lighting, and humidity-control systems, air-conditioning and heating systems, and touch-screen interactive kiosks were installed.

Hagia Sophia Imaret was renovated in 1777, 1871, 1884 and in 1893 and after 1920, was first used as the archives of the Istanbul Directorate General of Foundations and then as a lead workshop.

The General Directorate of Foundations Carpet Museum, one, one of the richest carpet collections in the world, includes carpets having great historical and artistic value that were donated to mosques and mescids as part of old Islamic tradition. Carpets and rugs were donated to allow the donors or the deceased to acquire merit in the afterlife; therefore, such carpets and rugs, along with their refinement and aesthetic and artistic qualities are of special importance.

Carpets and prayer rugs woven with unique regional patterns between the 14th and 20th centuries in many weaving centers of Anatolia, as well as those from Iran and Caucasia, are in the carpet museum collection. The carpets selected from the rarest pieces in the museum collection are exhibited in the three galleries of the museum in chronological order and according to design group.

FIRST GALLERY: Carpets from the Beylikler/Principalities, and Early and Classical Ottoman eras.
SECOND GALLERY: Ottoman-era Central and Eastern Anatolian carpets and prayer rugs.
THIRD GALLERY: Ottoman-era large-sized Uşak (Ushak) carpets and pure prayer rugs.

AYNALIKAVAK PAVILION AND MUSIC MUSEUM

Hasköy, Beyoğlu - Istanbul - Turkey

GPS : 41°02'17.0"N 28°57'19.1"E / 41.038051, 28.955318

Aynalikavak Pavilion And Music Museum photo aynalikavak_pavilion146.jpg

PHOTOGRAPHS ALBUM

The Aynalıkavak Pavilion is located in the Hasköy neighborhood in Kasımpaşa, Istanbul. It is not exactly known as to when it was built, but Evliya Çelebi, the famous 17th century Ottoman traveler and writer, states that it was built during the period of Sultan Mehmed II. Another source says that the pavilion was been built by Admiral Halil Paşa in 1613.

After the Turkish conquest of Istanbul this attractive stretch of countryside stretching inland from the shores of the Golden Horn became an imperial park known as the Tersane Hasbahçe after the naval arsenal at nearby Kasımpaşa. The earliest known building here dates from the reign of Sultan Ahmed I (1603-1617), and his successors added new country lodges over the centuries, until the entire complex became so large that it was referred to as Tersane or Aynalıkavak Palace.

HISTORY

The building, which has been decorating the coast of the Golden Horn since 17th century and which is today known as Aynalikavak Pavilion, is the only remaining sample from the group of buildings known as “Aynalıkavak Palace” or “Tersane Palace” during the Ottoman Period. The historical references reveals that the territory was also a resting place belonging to emperors during the Byzantine period.

This big coppice, which attracted the interests of Ottoman sultans after the conquest of İstanbul by Fatih Sultan Mehmed (1444-1481), was started to be named as “Tersane Hasbahçe” owing to the Ottoman Shipyard constructed at the territory. The earliest buildings on the territory date back to the reign of Fatih Sultan Mehmed and the first pavilion, which is certainly known to be constructed, dates to the reign of Sultan Ahmed I (1603-1617). This group of buildings, which has developed with the pavilions constructed by sultans in the course of historical process and which was also called as “Tersane Palace”; has been named as “Aynalıkavak Palace” beginning from the 17th century.

Aynalıkavak Pavilion, which takes place within the body of palace and which is estimated to be constructed during the reign of Sultan Ahmed III (1703-1730) underwent an extensive restoration process during the reign of Sultan Selim III (1789-1807) and was rearranged and gained its today’s appearance. Aynalıkavak Pavilion, the only remaining building from the earlier periods among the National Palaces which mainly consist of palaces, kiosks and pavilions of 19th century is extremely privileged with its traditional architecture and decoration features.

Aynalıkavak Pavilion is one of these buildings, thought to date originally from the reign of Sultan Ahmed III (1703-1730), although extensive alterations under Sultan Selim III (1789-1807) transformed its appearance radically. The principal rooms are a reception room known as the Divanhane and the smaller Music Room. Bands of exquisite calligraphic decoration around the windows of these two rooms consist of verses by two famous poets, Şeyh Galib and Enderuni Fazıl, in praise of the pavilion and Sultan Selim III. These italic inscriptions were designed by the calligrapher Yesari.

ARCHITECTURE and INTERIOR DESING

The name, Aynalıkavak Pavilion, comes from the mirrors which were a gift to Sultan Ahmed III after the Treaty of Passarowitz was signed and during which the Republic of Venice was left the Mora Peninsula to the Turks. The pavillion was built on a slope and its garden was decorated with different kinds of trees. One enters the pavillon through the porch and then passes into a wide hall. There are couches covered with silk located at the three corners of the wide hall, and a poem written by Sultan Selim III in gold print is located on the blue painted wall.

On a frieze around the top of the windows of Divanhane and of Composition Room, the verses of the famous poets of the term, Şeyh Galib and Enderûni Fâzıl, praising the Pavilion and Sultan Selim III, were inscribed by the calligrapher Mehmed Esad El Yesari in talik script. The pavilion which is one of the last and outstanding buildings of classical Ottoman Structure with its two storey body, facing the sea and one storey body facing the land, also reflects the taste of its age in terms of decoration and it incorporates many elements of the culture of the period of the composer Sultan Selim III.

In terms of its architecture and decoration Aynalıkavak Pavilion is a rare and outstanding example of classical Ottoman architecture. This small building is only one storey, with a basement under the section facing the sea. The pavilion is of additional interest because of its strong associations with Sultan Selim III, a respected composer. The traditional fitted seats or sedir along the walls and settees resembling sedir, braziers, lamps and other contemporary furnishings reflect a way of life which has disappeared entirely today.

The land façade sits on two floors and the sea-side façade on three. The pavilion has a divan room and an audience hall (Arz Odası) decorated with several works of calligraphy, nice windows, and mirrors. Its ceiling is covered by a dome. As characteristics of the period, Its top windows covered with revzens, its roofs with large eaves, fitted sedirs within the interior decoration, braziers which were the traditional way of heating, all demonstrate appearances of a past lifestyle which has disappeared today.

In the beginning of the 19th century, the Aynalıkavak Pavilion was called the Has Bahçe. During the rule of Sultan Mahmut II it was restored by the architect Kirkor Balyan. It took its present shape during the Reign of Sultan Selim III. During the Tulip Era, (or Lâle Devri in Turkish), the pavilion hosted many entertainment venues. In addition, it hosted the Aynalıkavak Agreement signed by Sultan Abdülhamid I on January 9, 1784 between the Ottoman Empire and Russia.

MUSEUM

The ground floor of Aynalılavak Pavilion, which was opened to visit on November 5th, 2010 upon completion of restoration and furnishing works, was refurnished as a museum in which historical Turkish musical instruments are exhibited in accordance with the artistic and musical personality of Sultan Selim III.

The late Gevheri Osmanoğlu who was one of the grand-chidren of Sultan Abdülhamid II (1876-1909) and his hairs, in 1984 donated their collections containg saz (musical instrument), musical note and stone gramophone records to Aynalıkavak Summer Palace to get them exhibited. Consequently, as Aynalıkavak Summer Palace was a place where Sultan Selim III: (1789-1807) lived and composed, a project about making a Turkish Musiki (music) center was established.

Following, some other collectioners and traditional turkish musicians (sazende) donated various instruments. Besides, as the musical instruments belonging to Istanbul Municipality Collection were added to the Aynalıkavak Summer Palace Collection, the general foundation of Aynalıkavak Sazları was formed, that will grow larger in the future The museum collection contains 65 musical instrument, over 200 stone record, many musical note and the press.

The gardens and cafeteria attract many visitors, as do the Aynalıkavak Concerts of classical Turkish art music. Private receptions can be held in the gardens.

PHOTOGRAPHS ALBUM

The Aşiyan Museum is a three storey house previously owned by Tevfik Fikret (1867-1915), a famous Turkish poet who lived there between 1906-1915. On the initiative of Lütfi Kırdar, both the mayor and governer of Istanbul during that period, it was  purchased from his widow, Nazime Hanım, and publicised by the city in 1940 and began its services as a museum under the name Edebiyat-ı Cedide Museum in 1945.

In 1961, the Museum (Edebiyat-ı Cedide Museum) was renamed as the Aşiyan Museum and is one of the museums operated by Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. It is also one an important place to be visited for lovers of literature.

This museum is the former residence of famous Turkish poet Tevfik Fikret (1867-1915) who constructed the building himself. In addition to an exhibit of the personal belongings of Fikret, there is a room devoted to the poet Nigar Hanım and displaying some of the belongings of Abdülhak Hamit. It's located in Aşiyan neighborhood on the Bosphorus.

Tevfik Fikret (1867 - 1915), one of Turkey's leading poets, was born in 1867 in Istanbul. He was educated in the famous Mekteb-i Sultani (Galatasaray High School) and he took several educational positions in the Mekteb-i Sultani (1894-1895).

Aşiyan Museum is the former home of the famous Turkish poet Tevfik Fikret. The wooden mansion overlooking Bosphorus was built by the poet himself. On show are the poet's several possessions and the painting Sis ( Fog ) made by Sultan Abdülmecid who was inspired by Tevfik Fikret's poem of that name.

He was the most important poet of the Servet-i Fünun literary movement (1896-1901) and his poetry marked a revolutionary beginning for modern Turkish literature. His efforts to "Westernize" Turkish poetry and his poems with their didactic and patriotic tone, inspired the enlightenment and secularism movements in Turkey. This explains why Tevfik Fikret was one of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's favorite poets.

The ground floor of the museum is used for administrative affairs. On the above floor, there is a room dedicated to the poet, Nigar Hanım, where her personal belongings, such as photos and paintings are on exhibit. There is a room called the “Edebiyat-ı Cedide Room,” in which the personal belongings and documents that belonged to the authors of Edebiyat-ı Cedide.

HISTORICAL PLACES

Kanuni Sultan Süleyman Bridge
World-known famous Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan started the construction of the bridge with the command of Sultan Mehmet during the statutory Szigetvar expedition. The bridge was completed 1566-1567 during II. Selim and reserve currency 73,853 has been spent. Hundreds of sculptor and carpenter worked in the construction of the bridge and the waters of the lake are drawn with giant water pumps. The foundation of the bridge combined with lead-casting piles which driven up to 2-3 human length. This basic method was later applied to the New Mosque by the architect Davut Aga. Mimar Sinan Bridge is 635 mt. long, 7.17 meters wide and composed of the combination of 4 different bellows.

Sokullu Mehmet Pasha Mosque
Sokullu Mehmet Pasha Mosque (1567) is located in Büyükçekmece Dizdariye District on Enver Pasha Street. Due to its location it is known as Mosque of Bridgehead. The mosque is one of Mimar Sinan`s masterpiece. Sokullu Mehmet Pasha Mosque composes a miniature range complex with the bridge and Büyükçekmece Caravanserai. The most important feature is its minaret which there is only two exsamples in the world. The minaret is sculptured from a single piece of stone. The other example for such a minaret is in Egypt.

Fountain of Kanuni Sultan Süleyman
Fountain is the oldest standing structure in Büyükçekmece next to Sokullu Mehmet Pasha Mosque. The Fountain was built together with historical Sultan Süleyman Bridge and Caravanserai. The fountain was constructed in classical style and hewn stone bases in 3 wings. Each wing has a fountain and drinking trough in front.

Kervansaray (Kurşunlu Han)
Caravanserai was a large range (host) place on the extending roads from Thrace to the Büyükçekmece in 16th century during the Ottoman Empire. Mosque complex, Namazgah, three-arched fountain with four sections in the form of a bridge structure is located in the Caravanserai. Restorations made from time to time rendered it possible to reach these works to the present day. The construction of the Caravanserai is not the first structure built by Mimar Sinan commanded by Süleyman the Magnificent. The inscription gives the date of 974/1566. It is understood that an important range complex of buildings adjacent to a mosque had built by Mimar Sinan during the statutory Szigetvar expedition of Sultan Mehmet.

West İstanbul Marina is set to become a living center in close touch with the sea in the western side of Istanbul owing to social facilities and water sports, in addition to being a new destination and mooring point for yachters.

In addition to a mooring capacity of 600 yachts on the sea and 300 yachts on land, it introduces the rack system for the first time in Turkey.

PHOTOGRAPHS ALBUM

Bakırköy is a neighborhood, municipality (belediye) and district on the European side of İstanbul, Turkey. Bakırköy lies between the D.100 highway (locally known as E-5) and the coast of the Sea of Marmara.

The center of Bakırköy is an important commercial district. There is a huge shopping district (including a number of huge shiny shopping centres as Carousel), a range of cinemas, bars and cafés. Now the council is trying to smarten up the shopping district by pedestrianising more of it and putting in fountains etc.

Bakırköy is easy to reach by public transport; there are dolmuş to Beyoğlu throughout the night; there are buses to Mecidiyeköy (although using the D.100 highway by bus is unpleasant indeed: there is a ferry boat service that takes passengers to Kadıköy and Bostancı on the Asian side of the city and also to the Adalar (Islands); and the light-railway from the airport to Aksaray runs through here. Moreover, the quarter has a station of the suburban railway line.
