Maiden's Tower

Bosphorus

The Maiden Tower story is a well known Istanbul legend

The tower is located on a small islet off the coast of Üsküdar, near the southern exit on the Bosphorus. There are a number of legends that recount the history of this elegant tower.

A king learns from one of his oracles that his daughter will be killed by a snake bite by her 18th birthday.

To protect his daughter, the king builds this tower on the water, away from any snakes and he imprisons his daughter here.

However the prophecy still manifests, as a snake enters the tower inside one of the birthday presents that the girl receives on her 18th birthday.

Today, you can reach the tower by boat and have a dinner with a 360 view of Istanbul
