Hatice Sultan Palace

The Hatice Sultan Palace (Turkish: Hatice Sultan Yalısı), a historical yalı (English: waterside mansion) located at Bosporus in Ortaköy neighborhood of Istanbul, Turkey and named after its original owner Hatice Sultan, is used today as a water sports club's building.[1]

The residence at Defterdarburnu (Defterdar Point) in Ortaköy[2] was used as an orphanage and later as a primary school after the Ottoman dynasty was exiled following the foundation of the Turkish Republic.[3]
