Hekimbaşı Salih Efendi Mansion

On the Asian side of the Bosphorus, between Anadoluhisarı (Anatolian Castle) and Kanlıca, just below the Second Bosphorus Bridge, a red "yalı" (seaside mansion) attracts one's attention with its vivid red colour and asymmetric architecture (three floors in the north, two floors in the middle and one floor in the south).

Salih Efendi who owned and gave his name to Mansion, was one of the prominent doctors of the Ottoman Empire,in the 19th century.
