Sogukcesme or Cold Fountain Street is located in the Sultanahmet Area. It starts near the gates of Topkapi and goes down to Divan Yolu Cadessi. You can see the historical houses of Istanbul here. This street shows us how the 18th century gentry of this city lived.

This is a single street right before the Topkapi Palace museum. Today (Janury 31, 2016) it is under restoration. However, it is a beautiful street with traditional 19th century Ottoman wooden houses. It is a nice street to get a sense of Old Stambul.

This fairly short, cobbled pedestrian street runs between the Topkapi Palace walls and Hagia Sophia. One end shows off a row of colorful Ottoman-type wooden two- to three-story houses that went up to revitalize a derelict section in the mid-1980s. They made up a hotel, where we stayed just after its completion. The interior decor stuck to the Ottoman theme... More

This street reminds the old times of istanbul and the houses on these streets feel make you feel you are wandering around the old time istanbul. And some of the houses are turned into cafés and you can try some Turkish coffee when feeling the old historical tissue of the street

We went here to a carpet and I learned so much about Persian carpets. The colors was bold and beautiful in silk and cotton, we even got to see how they wove the carpets. Now I know that I can go out and buy a carpet and know its real value.

A beautiful quiet street, with traditional wooden Turkish houses, worth a walk after visiting Ayasofya.

A beautiful and colourful example of a row of wooden Turkish houses. There are not many such groups of houses left which makes Sogukcheshme all the more precious.

Sogukcesme is a picturesque street near the Hagia Sofia and the Topkapi Palace. If you are in Sultanahmet, it is a nice idea to walk some minutes on this street.
