Kanlıca is a neighborhood on the Asian side of the Bosphorus strait, in the Beykoz district of Istanbul Province, Turkey. Kanlica is known for its popular specialty, yogurt topped with castor sugar, offered in local restaurants and cafés.
The İskender Pasha Mosque, commissioned by (military judge) Kazasker Gazi İskender Pasha and built by Mimar Sinan in 1559–60, is located across the Kanlıca Pier. The tomb of İskender Pasha is situated inside the mosque's yard.
The Kanlıca Cemetery is on the hill east of the locality overlooking the Bosphorus. Notable burials of the cemetery include journalist Sedat Simavi, the musicians Barış Manço and Kayahan Açar.
Kanlıca Pier serves the City Ferry Lines (Turkish: Şehir Hatları) connecting it with Emirgan, İstinye in the north and Anadoluhisarı, Kandilli, Bebek, Arnavutköy and Çengelköy in the south. The Kanlıca Pier is the starting point of the annual open water swimming event Bosphorus Intercontinental Swim, which runs 6.5 km (4.0 mi)-long southwards on the Istanbul Strait finishing at Kuruçeşme on the European part of the city.
During the Ottoman era, Kanlıca has been an upscale locality, where noble and wealthy people constructed waterfront mansions (Turkish: Yalı). Currently, it is one of the rare seaside places on the Asian side of the Bosphorus with the most historic wooden waterfront mansions.
