Aynalikavak Kasri known as Aynalikavak tersanesi. The Aynalikavak Kiosk is the only remaining structure from the Tersane (shipyard) or Aynalikavak palace which occupied the coastline and woody hills between Kasimpasa and Hasköy between the fifteenth and the nineteenth centuries. The palace was named after the imperial shipyards that were spread out along the northern coast of the Golden Horn (Haliç), scattered between imperial and ministerial palaces and pleasure gardens. The remaining kiosk is a two-story residence situated in a terraced garden protected by high walls, behind the Taskizak Shipyard of the Turkish Naval Forces. Its longitudinal axis, oriented northwest-southeast, lies perpendicular to the coastline, although it has been left further inland today than when it was first built.
