Çamlıca Hill (Turkish: Çamlıca Tepesi), aka Big Çamlıca Hill (Turkish: Büyük Çamlıca Tepesi) to differentiate from the nearby Little Çamlıca Hill (Turkish: Küçük Çamlıca Tepesi), is a hill in Üsküdar district of Istanbul, Turkey. Situated on the Asian part of the city at 288 m (945 ft) above sea level, Çamlıca Hill has a panoramic view of the southern part of Bosphorus and the mouth of Golden Horn.
The hill is a popular visitor attraction. There is historical-designed teahouses, cafes and a restaurant inside a public park with monumental trees, flower gardens and fountains, run by the Metropolitan Municipality.
Çamlıca Mosque was completed as the largest mosque in Asia Minor in 2019, it is able to accommodate 63,000 people and includes a museum, art gallery, library, conference hall, and underground parking lot.
Before 2021, there were numerous radio masts and towers (such as Çamlıca TRT Television Tower) present atop the hill, that caused visual pollution. To prevent this pollution, it was decided by the Turkish Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure to build a new, single tower in Little Çamlıca Hill. The total height of the tower is 369 m (1,211 ft) and includes observation decks and restaurants. Çamlıca Tower was inaugurated on May 29, 2021.
