In ancient times, Beyazit Square, which our webcam shows in live stream, was known as the Roman Forum Tauri Square with bronze bulls on a giant triumphal arch. Nowadays, there are several remains of marble blocks and columns from the triumphal arch, as also the monumental fountain remains. Besides, in the past there was also located the largest fountain in Istanbul, unfortunately, not preserved.
The Beyazıt Square, which is clearly visible online, is located in the center of the main transport highway of the city. The historic square, which had political significance in the Ottoman period and became a cultural center during the republic, still has the main square honorary title of Istanbul.
