  • Unfortunatelly this place could be amazing if taken care off. Hard to get to it from the bothers of the forest and when you get there it is hard to get to the top of the castle too.. very old wooden stairs, not safe. But if you manage to get to it anyway view is stunning. You can use the entrance of the forest fire station, they would open the gate to the ones who ask.
  • A very high, nice view and a very ancient historical place which deserves visiting.. Above that, you will also enjoy the forests while climbing up to the top of Aydos...
  • Aydos castle is beautiful traditional place in Istanbul Asia side. Now, restoration proceed its, but you can travel.
  • This castle remnant, which is important in istanbul's historical history, which was brought back to life by magic hands while buried in the dusty shelves of history, is still in need of interest. Of course, the renovations are not enough, but this also requires a long process, and it is necessary to thank the sultanbeyli municipality for their interest.

  • A friend of mine said there was great corruption in the construction of this castle, which works in the official institution, and they showed two to one, and i'll tell you from the language that sultanbeyli's entire deed will take the money to buy it here, they've squandered the money they've made the old version of the castle. I know that topkapi walls have turned into rumeli fortress, so there are no traces left from the historic Fortress of Aydos, and they've slaughtered trees, and there's a school under the moon, oh my God, a bunch of trees have been cut down by people who have no place in morality.
