History of Bekoz region

Bosphorus is one of the most important points and passages in the history of Istanbul. The Bosphorus is always full of fish and opportunities to plunder the rich communities around the Marmara Sea. For this reason, many immigrants have settled in the surrounding areas. During the Ottoman period, the land behind Bekoz was a free and forested area that was used for hunting by the sultans and the Ottoman court. The hunting resort in Küçüksu, which is now a district, and the springs and mosques that exist in the villages along the coast, remain from this era.

The word “Beykoz” is composed of two words “beyg” meaning prince or lord and “koz” meaning village. As mentioned, during the Ottoman period, the back land of this area was a place for hunting kings, that’s why it was named in this way.

Several famous factories such as glass factory, sculpture factory and shoe factory were established in the Beykoz region in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, but now they are closed and none of them are active.
