Overview

The Balat district, between Ayvansaray and Fener, was the most important Jewish settlement in istanbul during the 17th century. Some claim that its name derives from a Turkish rendering of the Greek "palation," or palace, owing to the presence of the nearby Blahernai (Vlaherna) palace. According to others, the name derives from the old, Western Anatolian city of "Piletos," from which many of the districts Roma population had migrated.
