The Yellow Pavilion is one of the structures in Beylerbeyi Palace complex situated on the coast of Üsküdar on the Anatolian side of Bosphorus is located in the northeast of the palace gardens on the fourth terrace. It is understood from the general architectural features that the Pavilion was constructed together with the palace building in 1863-1865. It is of two-storey and constructed with stonewall on a high basement floor. Roughly, the Pavilion, rectangular prismatic in shape, extending in east-west direction has a three-partite design with sharp lines. The Pavilion possessing a medium hall is composed of an entrance and a hall in the middle and one large room on each side. The middle section extended out on both sides constitutes a cruciform shape. Façades exhibit an eclectic approach covering neo-classical and neo-baroque style. Round-arched and convex-arch tripartite window groups, profiles surrounding these windows and elements in the shape of console are the basic foundation of the design on the façades framed in deep profile. An orientalist style also including traditional motifs is dominant in the indoor decoration. Moresque and baroque motifs are used together in the stylized embroidery in the geometric frames. Besides, there are ship and landscape paintings in the romantic sense.
