Where to visit in Istanbul by Oba Korsan taxi. There are thirty-nine different districts of Istanbul, in each of these districts you can see different architectures and historical places. Beylikdüzü, Esenyurt, Bahçeşehir and Esenler are among the places that draw attention.
B.C. It is assumed that the founders of Beylikdüzü, where the first settlement started in the 7th century, were Hellenes. B.C. Beylikdüzü, one of the favorite towns of Büyükçekmece, which came under Byzantine rule in the 2nd century, was connected to the Ottoman Empire after the conquest of Istanbul. Beylikdüzü, which is a summer resort and agricultural village, was an accommodation place for armies during the Byzantine and Ottoman periods, so there was no dense settlement in the region.
The old name of Beylikdüzü is “Gardan”, which means garden. Although this region has hosted many civilizations in history, when we look at the recent times, the traces of the Greeks can be seen in the district, especially until 1924. The Greeks living here were kept in population exchange with the Turks living in Greece, right after the War of Independence. And the Turks who came here with the exchange began to be settled.
The Turks who settled here were engaged in intensive agriculture, animal husbandry and fishing activities at first. After most of the Greeks left the region, it was decided to give a new name to the village, and the village was named “KAVAKLI” because of the density of poplar trees that easily adapt to the natural climate of the village. In 1924, within the scope of the new administrative organization of the newly established Republic of Turkey, Çatalca became the Province. This province was formed from Çatalca, Silivri and Büyükçekmece districts. Büyükçekmece county of this province does not have a sub-district but has 19 villages. Anarşa (Gürpınar), Gardan (Kavaklı), Tırakatya (Yakuplu) and Karvan, which form the present-day Beylikdüzü District, are among these villages.
You can tour this historical district for fame with Beylikdüzü korsan taksi.

Established on the farm land belonging to Ekrem Ömer Pasha at the beginning of the 19th century, the settlement was named Eşkinoz from Eşkinozgiller, one of the shareholders of this place.
In 1967, the name of the settlement was changed to Esenyurt. The participation of those who migrated from Romania and Bulgaria in 1920-1938 to the local population formed by the workers at Eşkinoz Farm, and the population that came with internal and external migrations in recent years (Bulgaria, Germany, Kars, Artvin, etc.) ensured that the ethnic structure took its current form.
The first settlement was formed at the Köyiçi Locality in the Merkez District. The Çingene District, which still has the most intense features of the settlement, is one of the core areas of the first settlement, where the gypsies still live in this area. The immigrant quarter, located in the northern part of the Merkez Mahallesi, where the Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants who came to the region between 1920-1938 resided, is also the oldest area of the settlement.

Litros and Avas, which remained as exchange villages for many years, preserved their names until the 1930s. With the change made in 1937-1940, Litros-Esenler was translated into Turkish as Avas – Atışalanı.
Although our district is not rich in historical artifacts, fountains, aqueducts, water balances and public fountains belonging to the Byzantine and Ottoman periods are among our historical structures that have survived to the present day. It is not possible to give precise information about the construction dates of the inscriptions of historical artifacts in Esenler, such as the Avas Arch, Atışalanı Fountain, Atışalanı Fountain, Menderes Fountain (Litros Ayazma), Yavuz Selim Fountain and Nene Hatun Fountain, as they have been destroyed over time.

The pipes of the Suleymaniye and Beylik waters pass over this aqueduct, which is called Avaskoy Arch or Yılanlıkemer on old maps. Kemer is the structure of Mimar Sinan. Among the aqueducts built by Sinan, the Avasköy Aqueduct is mentioned in both Tezkiret’ül-Bünyan and Tezkiret’ül-Enbiye.
The elegance in the structure of the arch and the technique applied clearly show that it is the structure of Mimar Sinan. It is seen that the 3 meter wide and 0.60-0.75 meter protrusions at the base and the buttresses made to be zero at the top, applied by Sinan in the Uzunkemer, Pasha Arch and other arches in order to meet the horizontal forces, were applied in this arch as well. The aperture of the eyes is 4.50 meters. Only the middle eye was built as 6 meters. The height of its top from the Talweg is 10.30 meters. The inner diameter of the pipes in this arch, which was built with hard limestone stones, is 21 centimeters.

Exchange took place between 1923-1927. About 30 families come from Bulgaria and Greece, and one or two families of immigrants from Romania. 90-95% of the village is distributed to the refugees. Bojdar will be referred to as Bojdere from this period until the years of the Second World War. In those difficult years, known as the “German War” in history, the German threat is increasing and the Republic of Turkey is increasing its measures. For this purpose, the Turkish Army is making logistic build-ups in Hoşdere and its vicinity. One of the force commanders goes and the other comes. In one of these visits, Marshal Fevzi Çakmak – It is also said to be İsmet İnönü – comes to the village. The season is spring. They wander for a while… All the shades of green and the scent of colorful flowers are dazzling. Marshal Fevzi Çakmak asks the headman: “What is the name of this village?” The headman replied timidly: “Boşdere, my pasha!”. The Marshal scolds: “How could it be Bosdere, such a nice place, Bosdere? This is Hoşdere… Yes, this village will be called Hoşdere from now on.” After that day, Bosdere starts to be known as Hoşdere.
On the other hand, “Ispartakule Mevkii” appears as “Ispartakule Station”, “Ispartakule Viaduct” and “Ispartakule Farm”, which is given to the station after Halkalı on the railway connecting Istanbul to Europe.
