Entrance of the famous Ottoman period building "Hidiv Pavillion" on the Asian side of Bhosphorus.
Hidiv Pavilion is located on the hills of Cubuklu neighborhood in Beykoz district on the Asian side. It was built in 1907 by Italian architect Delfo Seminati as a residence for the Ottoman governor (Hidiv or Khedive) of Egypt, Abbas Hilmi Pasha. The mansion stands in a large park, at the main entrance there is a monumental fountain rising all the way to the roof which is covered with stain glass. Other fine fountains and pools surround the building. Several rooms and halls are connected to each other on a circle plan, and there is a large hall on the ground floor with a fire place. On the upper floors there are two great bedrooms. The tower is the most popular section of the kiosk because of its view over the Bosphorus, one can access to the terrace on top with an elevator or by using the stairs.
The Hidiv kiosk was sold to the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IBB) in the 1930s and not used until 1980s. After a two year restoration period, Hidiv Kiosk was opened in 1984 as a hotel, restaurant and cafeteria. It's open everyday.
2 Şubat'ta TE dostlarımdan bir grupla Çubuklu sırtlarındaki Hidiv köşkünde güzel bir kahvaltı buluşması gerçekleştirdik.

A very glorious place, and I like that you lifted the camera up, as the gold leaf on the ceiling rose makes this place feel very opulent. We can still see the people relaxing outside too! Nicely done on what looks like exceedingly difficult lighting!
Thanks as always
