Topkapı Gate, was completely destroyed during the conquest and it was rebuilt after the conquest. The gate got its Turkish name because of some cannonballs  that beat the walls during the conquest. After these cannonballs was placed on the gate. Some travelers who visited walls of Istanbul in the middle of the 19th century talked about these cannonballs. On the right side of gate, there is an inscription about conquest of Istanbul.

There is two mosque was built by Mimar Sinan around Topkapı: Arakiyeci İbrahim Agha Mosque and Kara Ahmet Pasha Mosque.

Arakiyeci İbrahim Agha Mosque especially attract with its mosaics. Kara Ahmet Pasha Mosque attract with its pen embroidery. Visit these mosque while you’re here.

Between inner and outer walls, there’s 15-20 meters a corridor called peribolos. This corridor is speacially designed for soldiers move freely between the walls during the siege. This corridor is used by Fatih Municipality as a cafe. You can drink a cup of tea and walk safely in the “peribolos”.

The flat area ends after from Topkapı. Let’s walk to the Vatan Street, which was once Lykus Stream. There is no ditch due to this ramp. This is weakest point of the walls. Therefore, the main war took place  in this region during the conquest and entered  the city from this there.

Ulubatlı Hasan is a hero of the conquest. He erected the flag of Ottoman on the walls of Constantinople. Therefore, a sign which is about Ulubatlı Hasan, hang on the walls.

After from Vatan Street, let’s walk to the Sulukule Gate.
