Karaca Ahmet cemetery

Named after Karaca Ahmet Sultan, this cemetery is known as Turkey's largest burial ground (750 acres) and also oldest in Istanbul. Located in Üsküdar, this magnificent cemetery has seven gates;

1-Seyyid Ahmed (Iraniler) Gate

2-Namazgâh Gate

3-Harmanlik Gate

4-Sehitler Gate

5-Körkapi Gate

6-Yanik Ömer Gate

7-Fistikli Gate

Alongside many damaged and ruined ones, it is still possible to see some of the headstones with historical inscriptions. Karaca Ahmet cemetery, with millions of people interred up until now, has no space left for burials anymore.
