Ihlamur Pavilion is known as the casir at the Ihlamur Promenade, located in the valley between Besiktas and Nişantasi. This used to be a promenade filled with greenery, shaded by linden and plane trees, through which the Fulya stream flowed. The first part of the valley, where the hurricanes are located today, was the vineyards belonging to Hacı Hüseyin Ağa, one of the shipyard emins, during the reign of Sultan Ahmed III. Later, it joined the state treasury and was converted into a hasbahçe belonging to the sultan.
It is known that Sultan Selim III and Sultan Mahmud II held shooting competitions together with kemankeş in the second part of the field rising towards Yildiz. This information was obtained from some engagement stones that have survived to this day. The distances, degrees and dates of the sultans' shots into the water-filled jugs are also written on the stones. During the reign of Sultan Abdulmecid, the third part of the valley called the “Garden of Conversation” was added and afforestation works are being carried out. Sultan Abdulmecid built two hurricanes in this area in 1849-1855. He then gives the name 'Nuzhetiye' here, which means 'refreshment and freshness'.
During the reign of Sultan Abdulaziz, various entertainments and pehlivan wrestling were organized in this hasbahçe, and in the following years it continued to be a place frequented by the sultan and his family for trips. The Ihlamur Pavilion was given to the Istanbul Municipality by the Turkish Grand National Assembly in 1951 after the proclamation of the Republic. Later it was organized as a ”Tanzimat Museum'. after the regulations in 1966, the Ihlamur Pavilions were opened to the public as a museum-palace in 1985.
The Ceremonial Pavilion within the Ihlamur Pavilions is reserved for the official use and ceremonies of Sultan Abdulmecid, while the Entourage Pavilion is reserved for the Sultan's entourage and harem. Kasırlar, which is a boarding or in other words, the Sultan's day-rest place, is a place where diplomatic guests are also entertained.
