That means the tomb of GUL BABA.I tell you the story.During 1500's Beyoglu was a hunting area with trees and big empty spaces.One day SULTAN BAYAZID II while hunting he lost his direction and it was raining like cats and dogs.

The saw a small cottage in rosa garden.Area was smelling very beautiful.The Sultan and his friends knocekd the door and Gul Baba (The father of Rose) opened the door and started to chat.Gul baba said he likes very much roses and like yellow and red roses .While Sultan was leaving his cottage The Father of Rose gave the Sultan 2 roses.One is red rose and the other one is yellow rose.

After while Sultan Bayazid has ordered a school (GALATASARAY-I ENDERUNU) and color of the school become the feature GALATASARAY SPORT CLUB official colors.

School opened in 1500's but ıt s opened colege style in 1800's.
