Beykoz Mecidiye Pavilion

Beykoz Mecidiye Pavilion, which is known as "A Mansion Made of Marble", is qualified as one of the oldest pavilions in Istanbul. The construction of the Beykoz Mecidiye Pavilion, which was started to be built by Mehmed Ali Pasha the Egyptian Governor in 1845, could only be completed in 1854 after his death in 1849. After Mehmed Ali Pasha passed away, his son, Said Pasha, the Governor of Egypt, took over the construction process.

Beykoz Mecidiye Pavilion, which has a symmetrical square plan in general terms, consists of two floors, the ground floor and the first floor. The pavilion, where the colored stones on its walls immediately catch the glimpse when examining the interior, differs from other palaces and pavilions in this sense. This floor of the Beykoz Mecidiye Pavilion, which welcomes its visitors with a large and rectangular planned hall on the ground floor, is entered with impressive marble colonnaded porticos.

There is a large hall on the first floor of the pavilion same as the ground floor. However, this area, which was decorated in a much more splendid way compared to the hall on the ground floor, was used as a ceremony and throne hall in the representation of the state. While one of the balconies of the hall, where each furniture is carefully selected, overlooks the city and the other the sea, the walls are also covered with marble specially brought from Egypt. The ceilings made entirely of wood gives a magnificent ambiance to the living room.

Beykoz Mecidiye Pavilion, which is famous for being one of the first masonry buildings built in a new style, as well as pine, lime and magnolia trees surrounding the Beykoz Mecidiye Pavilion, and covers a large area of ​​approximately 70 thousand square meters, is considered as one of the most striking examples of the famous Marble mansions.
