Yenikapı Mevlevi Lodge

Aside from its foundation, Yenikapı Lodge provided financial aid and repair needs from many government officials and the sultans. Some important figures such as Buhurizade Mustafa Itri, Şeyh Galib and Hammamizade İsmail Dede Efendi were brought up and trained in Yenikapı Mevlevi Lodge. The construction was used as hospital during the Balkan Wars and the Battles of Çanakkale and became a student dormitory after the dervish lodges were officially shut down. After being exposed to fires many times, it was restored by The Management of Foundations in cooperation with Zeytinburnu Municipality in 2004-2009 and given to the use of Fatih Sultan Mehmed Vakıf University.
