- What’s On
The Hekim Salih Efendi Yali presents a concert with the Anatolian Wind Ensemble.
The Hekimbaşı is one of the very few wooden yalıs still in the original family’s ownership, and it shows. Meticulously painted in the proper ox-blood red aşıboya paint (to the old recipe), nothing has been done to embroider it. When the shutters are closed, it is just another jewel box waiting to be discovered. The owners of the Hekimbaşı Salih Efendi Yalı help to keep the house in immaculate condition by allowing wedding functions and the like in the garden. They also stage small concerts and allow specialist groups to visit the house.
