Istanbul in Fatih district, Istanbul Province, Turkey
Alay Pavilion was the building constructed above the outer wall of Topkapl Palace for the sultans to watch the ceremonies. Before the construction of Alay Pavillion, there was a timber pavilion in 16th century. The recent building of the pavilion was constructed by Mahmud II in Western European style.
The pavilion that was reached by a wide ramp passing from Gulhane Park, was composed of a round sultan room and service buildings.The top of the pavilion was covered by a wide canopied bulbed, slotted,lead-lined cone. Inside it was seen that this cone was in dome-shape.
According to the project of Swiss architects Fossati Brothers, by constructing Telgrafhane-i Amire building in-between the bastion next to Alay Pavilion and Sogukcesme Door and contiguous to outer part of the wall in 1855, a new Alay Pavilion was constructed at one side of Dolmabahce Palace, the original Alay Pavilion losing its function was allocated to the ministers of telegraph office. After the telegraph office was removed and its building by the street was destructed, Alay Pavilion was not used for so long, in the first years of the Republican Era it was allocated to the Association of Fine Arts.The pavilion that was linked to the Directorate of Topkapi Palace in 1938, was restorated severely afterwards.
