Güpgüpoğlu Konağı information
Ignore the scruffy mannequin-inhabited dioramas acting out Ottoman daily life and instead feast your eyes on the glorious interior of this grand mansion's painted wooden wall panels and ceilings. The building dates from the 15th century and Mamluk architectural influence is obvious in its regal black-and-white stone façade. During the 19th century the house's multicoloured beams and intricately carved woodwork were home to composer and lyricist Ahmet Mithat Güpgüpoğlu.
