The land around this inlet of the Sea of Marmara, has been settled, abandoned and resettled throughout history as army after army passed along the coast to the Bosphorus. It is thought to be the site of the Greek colony on the Marmara shore called Athyra (Άθυρα), also known as Athyras.
The armies of Attila the Hun took this settlement and its associated fort in 443 AD. This was presumably his last conquest of that campaign before turning around.
The earliest mention of the bishopric of Athyra in a list of dioceses is of the late 15th century. However, a seal has been found of a 10th-century Bishop Orestes of the see. Athyra is today listed by the Catholic Church as a titular see.
The Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan built a bridge to cross the mouth of the inlet and there are ruins of inns and caravansarai. This shows that this area was a stopping place on the road to Europe. At the beginning of the Ottoman period, it was empty forest and farmland. Yet, it has gradually been settled by Turkish people migrating in from the Balkans and the Caucasus.
In the early years of the Turkish Republic, it was still very rural, with village cottages, farmland behind. You could find the the odd weekend home for people of Istanbul by the sea. The area was a very popular day or weekend trip from the city, there is a sandy shoreline, a long seafront and until the 1970s families would come out to this district for fishing, crabbing or for a day on the beach.
