In 16th century, with the aim of ruling the whole Anatolia, the Ottomans moved forward to conquer Erzurum which has a strategic importance. But the location of the city made Ottomans confront Safavids. In order not to hand it over Ottomans in a good condition, Safavids and Georgians ruined the city. By making a great deal of investment, the Ottoman rulers tried to develop the city again. As a result of these housing and developmental activities, through the end of the 16th century, Erzurum regained an appearance of a developed city. In further time, the Ottomans continued their contributions for the perfection of the city. In 17th and 18th centuries, Erzurum was one of the most significant military and commercial centres of Anatolia. As a result, in this study, some information is given about the population, districts and administrative body of Erzurum in order to have a picture of its development under the reign of the Ottomans.
