- What’s On
The grandest of the newly renovated yalıs in Beylerbeyi is the Hasip Pasha Yalı, built in the late 18th century by a vizier whose last descendant was still living there in 1942, when the furniture was sold in a famous auction. Yalıs traditionally had two distinct sections, often in separate buildings: the selamlık, or reception wing, identifiable by its boathouse, and the harem, or private living quarters. Here, all is left is the selamlık, built with a domed drawing room like that in the Sadullah Pasha Yalı. The harem was replaced by the Mabeynci Faik Bey Yalı, built by Abdülhamid II’s chief of protocol in 1890 .
