Asiyan Museum

Asiyan Museum The Asiyan Museum gave its name to the street where it is located; the museum is in fact, what was once the residence of the infamous Turkish poet Tevfik Fikret. The author of the Ottoman period was born on December 26, 1867 and died on August 19, 1915.

The founder of the modern school of poetry built his own residence for his wife and son in 1906, and named it Asiyan, Persian for Home.
