Contributions to Society

The Adile Sultan Foundation

Adile Sultan founded this foundation to promote education and social aid. More information on the Adile Sultan Foundation can be found at the Rare Relics Library's Turkish Manuscripts Department at Istanbul University (Reg.nr. 4993) in Istanbul.

The Adile Sultan mansion and the woods that surround it currently serve as a teachers' hospital.

The palace of Adile Sultan in Findikli was used in 1920 for the first National Assembly. Between 1953-1970 the building served as the Girls High School and after 1970 the building was given to the Academy of Fine Arts.

Buildings for the the public interest

Through Adile Sultan's efforts schools were repaired, new ones were built and solutions for the city's water problems were found. Some of her projects are located in Istanbul: the Adile Sultan Children's School in the Gul Mosque; the School of the Galata Arab Mosque; the school at Anadoluhisari; the fountain at the Arab Mosque; the cistern of Bedevi Dergahi; and the Adile Sultan Fountain at Laleli.

After her daughter's death from tuberculosis, she built the Validebağ Sanatorium in Istanbul in her memory.

The Adile Sultan Palace

In 1868 Adile Sultan donated her summer palace, built in 1861 by the architect Sarkis Balyan, to the Ministry of Public Education for a girls' school. In 1916 due to Selma Rıza Feraceli's initiative, this building became the first girls' boarding school.

The school building served as a children's orphanage during the War of Independence and after the proclamation of the Republic it became a sanatorium for teachers and students alike. Later it became a teachers' hotel and cultural center. More recently, it was reconstructed to become a concert hall by the Foundation of the Kandilli Girls School. It is located at Kandilli Mahallesi, Vaniköy Caddesi No.12, Vaniköy-Üsküdar.
