Allay Pavilion Jun 01, 2017
The Alay Pavilion was the building constructed above the outer wall of Top Kapi Palace for the sultans to watch the ceremonies.

In the 16th century there was already a timber pavilion. The recent building was constructed in West European style by order of Sultan Mahmud II.

It was composed of a round sultan room and service buildings. The top of the pavilion was covered by a wide canopied bulbed, slotted, lead line cone.

It lost its function in 1855 when a new Allay Pavilion was constructed at one side of Dolmabahce Palace.

The original Allay Pavilion was not used for so long before it was restorated severely and put into service in 2011.
