Sait Halim Paşa Waterfront Mansion

Sait Halim Paşa Waterfront mansion, also called ‘Aslanlı Yali’ because of the two lion statues located in the neighboring part of the coast, is located in the Yeniköy District of Istanbul. Yalı, one of the magnificent buildings of the city belonging to the last quarter of the 19th century, which brings its memories to the present day, was built in neo-classical style.

The historical building facing the Bosphorus gets its name from Sait Halim Paşa, the son of Prince Mehmet Abdülhalim Paşa. Although Yalı was built with a simple exterior architecture reflecting the Westernization trend of the Ottoman Empire, it was mixed with traditional elements in its interior decoration.

Among the villas that surround the Bosphorus in rows, the Sait Halim Paşa Waterfront mansion, which has brought its historical heritage to the present day, is arranged on a marble floor as two floors, and the south part is reserved for men and the north for women. This Waterfront Mansion used to be surrounded by a sea bath from where people could enter into the sea from three directions. The building, which was significantly damaged by fire in 1995, underwent a major restoration in 1998 and completed its extant appearance in 2002. Sait Halim Paşa mansion, which is home to all kinds of organizations in Yeniköy, the Pearl of the Bosphorus, is ideal for having pleasant experiences with its open-air cinema, events, and breakfasts, especially in summer.
