Beylerbeyi Palace builds by Sultan Abdulaziz’s request on the Asia side of İstanbul between 1861-1865 to the architectures Sarkis and Agop Balyan, today it takes place in the Uskudar district. Erstwhile the region was called "Cross Gardens" because there was a huge cross on it which was erected by Constantine II. The area was then the land of Gevher Sultan’s palace and Sultan Murad IV was born here.
