Not far from the large bazaars on Beyazıt Square (built by Constantine the Great) is the beautiful main gate  to Istanbul university (built in 1864).  The gate is so striking, it graced the back of the  500 Turkish Lira banknote during the years of 1971-84.

Originally, established in 1453 under the Ottoman empire as “House of Multiple Sciences”  the campus was re-structured in 1925 into a modern university by the most non-other then  Atatürk!

If you want to visit the campus, it is beter to go before 5:00pm.
