Bahçelievler district is located on the European side of Istanbul. It is adjacent to Bakırköy, Güngören, Bağcılar, Küçükçekmece and Zeytinburnu districts.
Bahçelievler and its surroundings were known as Hepdemon when agriculture and viticulture activities were intense during the Byzantine Empire. Hepdemon was on the transit route of caravans and military convoys coming from Rumelia to Istanbul. Many imperial palaces, churches, and residences were built here. Thanks to its extensive lands, proximity to Istanbul, and abundant water, it became a headquarters. In big earthquakes, the people fled to this region and stayed here until the disaster's effects passed. Besides, Hepdemon was one of the most popular summer resorts due to its proximity to the capital and the Marmara coast.
In the 1900s, when economic relations with Europe developed, the construction of new highways with inadequate railways was accelerated. In the meantime, a significant road project passing through the north of Bahçelievler was done. Housing and employment areas and many neighborhoods were formed along this road. In addition to this road that became inadequate in the 1960s, a new road, E-5, was built from the south and this road bounded Bahçelievler from the south. When many factories were established along this road, the settlement started to look like a city and became a large settlement area, and today's Bahçelievler was built.
On 25 August 1992, Bahçelievler became a district.
Bahçelievler district, which is approximately 2 km away from Bakırköy coast, is located close to many central connection points of the city, so there are many different transportation options.
