Eyüp (pronounced [ˈejyp]) or Eyüpsultan is a municipality (belediye) and district of the city of İstanbul, Turkey. The district extends from the Golden Horn all the way to the shore of the Black Sea. Eyüp is also the name of a prominent neighborhood and former village in the district, located at the confluence of the Kâğıthane and Alibey streams at the head of the Golden Horn. The Eyüp neighborhood is a historically important area, especially for Turkey's Muslims. It became district centre in 1936, after some parts of Fatih, Çatalca and Sarıyer was joined together; later for some time it also included Gaziosmanpaşa and Bayrampaşa districts. Its present boundaries were established after the borough of Yayla was given to Sultangazi in 2009. Its neighbours are Sarıyer in the east, Kâğıthane and Beyoğlu in the southeast, Gaziosmanpaşa, Fatih and Sultangazi in the south, Başakşehir in the southwest and Arnavutköy in the west.
