Süreyya Beach Monument

At Süreyya Beach, located in the Maltepe district on the Anatolian side of Istanbul, the famous monument that used to rise in the sea is now located close to the beach but on land, next to a retail shopping mall. But it's not because it's being dismantled and moved.

The Süreyya Beach monument was erected on a rocky area in 1953, 50 meters from the shore on the popular beach of the period. It remained an icon and aesthetic value of the beach, which is about 300 meters long, for many years. It was also an interesting stop, reached by swimming. It used to be quite common to take pictures at the Süreyya Beach Monument. It was also known that singles came, went to sea, and prayed to get married by reaching the monument.

As a result of the public needs that arose over time, the beach was surrounded by roads and various structures as a result of soil embankment. In a nutshell, the place where it is today was a very popular seaside in the 1950s.

The monument, consisting of six pillars and a dome, is similar to the ancient monument Temple de Vierges, that is, the Temple of the virgins. The monument, which attracts attention with its elegance, awaits the visit of those whose route will pass from the road to Maltepe.
