They say that Istanbul surrounds those who truly falls in love with this city with special care and hospitality. Of this you can be sure it when you stand on top of the Asian hill, from where Istanbul will show you the most beautiful views. Çamlıca Hill offers a completely different impression of Istanbul that is striking in its beauty and uniqueness.

Many visitors know and love the fascinating Turkish stories that demonstrate the influence of the East. Vising the Maiden Tower, you will hear many legends no less magical than the book “A Thousand and One Nights”. It is an extraordinarily beautiful place that appears from the waters of the Bosphorus. Listen to the story of the tower which reveals the meaning of the Turkish proverb “the rider and the horse have already left uskudar”. According to the legend, Battalgazi fell in love with the daughter of Tekfura. But Tekfura did not want to give his daughter’s hand in marriage and locked her in the tower. There was no stopping the bold Battalgazi who loved the young woman with all his heart. Faithful to his feelings, he fought bravely for their happiness, capturing the tower and rescuing his love. Intoxicated with success Battalgazi rode triumphantly away from Uskudar.

Experience the bustle of the Bosphorus, an invigorating Turkish tea in a cozy café on the top floor of the tower, and enjoy a leisurely story that will relax and plunge you into the magical world of the East.
