Üryanizade Cemil Molla Efendi, one of the statesmen of the Ottoman Empire, decides to build a mansion on the land inherited from his grandfather. Cemil Molla Efendi, who had the mansion built by the Italian architect Signor Alberti, turned it into a centre of culture and arts, organised philosophy and poetry nights and hosted musical nights with musical instruments such as piano, oud, tambour, clarinet.
The mansion, which was put up for sale after his death, was characterised as inauspicious by its new owners. According to rumours, every family that moved to the mansion started to experience negativities. After these events, the name of the mansion was called 'haunted mansion' among the people.
