Cihangir is one of the neighborhoods of the Beyoglu district in Istanbul, Turkey. The neighborhood has many narrow streets, a park, and street cafes. It is located between Taksim Square and Kabatas.
During Byzantine times, the area of the present neighborhood was probably not settled, although there were Byzantine buildings near present-day Tophane and Findikli along the Bosphorus below Cihangir.
During the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent, the area was a forested hunting ground. It was one of the favorite places of Suleiman's son Cihangir, and after Cihangir's death, Suleiman had Mimar Sinan build a wooden mosque there overlooking the Bosphorus. The neighborhood's name comes from this mosque.
In the last half of the nineteenth century, the increasing influx of non-Ottoman Europeans into Istanbul drove up real estate prices in the nearby Pera district in Beyoglu, to which they were officially confined. Some Europeans, however, acquired land in areas outside Pera such as Tophane, Findikli, and Cihangir, leading to a great deal of residential development in those neighborhoods.
Starting in the 1930s, non-Muslim residents of Cihangir and the rest of Beyoglu left or were forced out. They were replaced by Muslims from other Istanbul neighborhoods and by internal migrants from eastern Turkey. As the character of the neighborhood changed, middle-class Muslims also began leaving the neighborhood. By the 1970s, Cihangir was known as a neighborhood where Anatolian migrants lived alongside artists and intellectuals.

"My own nest abroad"
Akif 2 was our home away from home for three weeks. It is in a terrific location with many cafés, restaurants, supermarkets and public transport options. Eight beautifully large windows open to the outside sunshine and enhances the appartment . Karin and her team were terrific, collecting us from the airport (extra) on our first night in Istanbul. We also organised a transfer back to Attaturk airport at the end (extra). Very secure, bedroom and lounge doors with locks if you are over cautious. Watch out for the cat in the window opposite the kitchen window. So much better than the rush and tumble of the Sultan Ahmet side.
