Pangaltı (spelled Pangaaltı or Pancaldi in some older sources) is one of the four neighbourhoods (together with Teşvikiye, Maçka and Osmanbey) within the Nişantaşı quarter of the Şişli district in Istanbul, Turkey.
As part of the 1860s redevelopment of Istanbul, The Christian cemeteries in Taksim were moved to Şişli, when the avenue between Taksim and Pangaltı was under construction in 1864, and a garden-park (Taksim Gezisi) was arranged in their place. The Anarad Hiğutyun (Armenian for "Immaculate Conception") Armenian Catholic Church (Anarad Hiğutyun Ermeni Katolik Kilisesi ) was built in 1866 in timber, and from 1971-1973 rebuilt in stone.
The Private Armenian School of Pangaltı (former Mihitaryan Ermeni Mektebi or "Mihitaryan School"), established in Kandilli in 1811 serves the public in the quarter since 1866. It was associated with the school of the Armenian Sisters of the Immaculate Conception who were founded in Istanbul in 1847. The school continues today.

L'origine des noms des personnes habitant ce quartier nous permet d'avancer cette hypothèse. Les étrangers ou Levantins et les Latins ottomans vivaient en compagnie des Grecs et des Arméniens. La confirmation du pourcentage et aussi du voisinage des Levantins et des minorités, nous la trouvons dans VAnnuaire Oriental de 1913, où figurent les habitants de chaque rue des différents quartiers1 de la ville. Après avoir regroupé toutes les rues du quartier Pancaldi indiquées dans l'Annuaire Oriental, nous avons relevé les noms des personnes qui y habitaient. Le caractère chrétien du tissu social de ce quartier est incontestable, et, franchissant un pas de plus, nous avons essayé de réaliser un pourcentage approximatif de ses habitants selon l'origine (latine, grecque, arménienne) de leurs noms."

A wide road (tarik-i vaz) between Taksim and the Military School in Pangalti, first proposed in 1862, was completed in 1869. 85 This tree-lined artery was soon extended to Şişli. .. In 1864, when the road between Taksim and Pangalti was under construction, the Christian cemeteries in Taksim were moved to Şişli, and a garden was planned for the area previously occupied by the cemeteries"
