Üsküdar Area In Istanbul 2022

Usküdar is located on the Asian side at the entrance to the Bosphorus. Originally

Üsküdar was called Scutari, and it was located between Salacak and Pasalimani

neighborhoods, but it expanded during the years, and now it stretches to Ümraniye

on the east, to Kadiköy in the south, and to Beykoz in the north.


During the Ottoman period, Usküdar was the third Muslim judgeship of Istanbul,

besides Galata and Eyüp. The Muslim people coming from Anatolia resided in

Usküdar after it was taken by sultan Orhan Gazi in 1352. Sultan Mehmed the

Conqueror speeded the immigration from Anatolia to Usküdar. The famous Turkish

traveler Evliya Çelebi in the 17th century wrote that there were 70 Muslim

neighborhoods in Usküdar and most of the people had emigrated from Anatolia. He

also stated that there were 11 Greek and Armenian, one Jewish, and no French

neighborhoods in Usküdar. This gave an ethnic and culturally homogeneous

structure to the district.
