As one of the two seyir mansions, Abdulaziz made it built in 1871. There are no bathrooms and bedrooms this mansion because this was only used for daily visits. During the trials of the suspects that Abdulhamid saw responsible of the death of Abdulaziz, suspects were exposed to torture on the basement floor.
South side of the mansion opens to one of the two big pools of Yıldız Parc. Like Malta Mansion, Çadır Mansion was restorated in 1979 with the contribution of Çelik Gülersoy and in 1995, served as a restaurant and cafeteria. İstanbul Metropolitan Municipality started to manage this mansion in 1997.
Abdulhamid II was interested in theatre and concerts. He probably made this theatre built according to suggestions of the Italian artists within the palace. The theatre was originally designed by d’Aronco. His project was using the narrow place as wide as possibly. This idea was kept but sophisticated details were not made. In this hall, Sarah Bernardt, Coquelin, Chaliapin performed and were awarded with medals.
