Kağıthane is a district of Istanbul located on the European side, close to the city center. Surrounded by Beşiktaş, Şişli, Eyup Sultan, Sarıyer and Beyoğlu, Kağıthane has a short beach that stretches out into the Golden Horn, often known as "the bay." Kağıthane is regarded as one of Istanbul's ancient areas, and its name is derived from the presence of a paper store within it. In Turkish, the term Kağit implies paper.
During the Ottoman time, Kağıthane was the favorite location for relaxation and pleasure. Today, the ancient Kağıthane, which fell out of favor during the Ottoman era, has resurfaced on the facade thanks to an increase in urban transformation, with shopping malls and commerce replacing the haphazard dwellings that formerly dotted the area, transforming it into one of the hubs of investment in Istanbul.
Kağıthane, a region of rich, beautiful scenery and greenery that is frequently referenced in literary works from the late Ottoman period, was a place of great natural beauty and vegetation, where horse carriage excursions were available to explore palaces, mosques, and fountains that were plentiful at the time, but most of them did not survive to be seen now.
However, there are still many interesting locations to visit and explore in Kağıthane, the most notable of which are:
Sadabad Mosque, also known as Al-Aziziya Mosque, is a mosque in Kağıthane district, near the Kağıthane River's flow. The original mosque on the location of today's mosque was erected in the eighteenth century and was later renovated in the nineteenth century, where it still stands today. The Sadabad Mosque was later renovated in a western design by Kağıthane Municipality in the 1990s to become a tourist destination.
