This European style pavilion was built in 1852 by Sultan Abdülmecid. He employed a British architect, William James Smith, to design this palace which was to house important foreign visitors. The palace earned its name from the cannon foundry in this neighbourhood (tophane = cannon foundry), but is now used by Mimar Sinan University and is closed to the public. The palace is located near Nusretiye Mosque.
Address: Necatibey Caddesi, Beyoğlu
