The port of Kanlica is called “Glaros”, meaning sea gull. In Ottoman times, people drove oxcarts, called “kagni”, and when they went to Kanlica it meant that they were going to a place which could be reached by kagni. Bosphorus village known as Kanlica is famous for its yoghurt, and the mansion Haci Ahmet Bey is also located there.. This yali was built during the reign of Sultan Abdülhamit II, who ruled the Empire for 33 years. It now belongs to the Ramazanoglu family. Atatürk is said to have visited the house in the circumcision ceremony of one of their sons.
