Anadolu Hisarı was built by Yıldırım Bayezid in 1395 in the narrowest part of Istanbul Bosphorus. It was built to seize the Istanbul Bosphorus and safely carry the army to the opposite shore in a war that may happen near the Rumeli.
The fortress on the outer side is the fortification wall. Its east-west diameter is 65 m, north-south diameter is 80 m. The thickness of the walls is between 2 m-5m.
