In fact, the project of the Dolmabahçe Palace Akaretler (Mass Housing) was started by architect Sarkis Balyan during the reign of Sultan Abdulaziz (1875) for the guardians and aghas serving in the palace long ago, however this area became important in terms of tourism later on and was named as Akaretler Row Houses.
