Girls’ High School The Girls' High School in Adana, which was originally constructed as a Military High School under the patronage of Adana Governor Abidin Pasha in 1881-1883 during the rule of Sultan Abdülhamit II, is set to be transformed into a Culture and Art Center. Initially named after Abidin Pasha, the institution was later renamed Mekteb-i Sultani in 1908, and eventually came to be known as Adana Girls' High School. The historical significance of this structure lies in the fact that it served as a Girls' High School for a considerable period of time. However, with the changing times, the decision has been taken to convert the building into a venue for cultural and artistic activities. During the Ottoman era, the military system underwent significant changes after the abolition of the Janissaries in the reign of Mahmut II. This led to the establishment of augmented military schools under the rule of Abdulhamid II, who had a vision of transforming young individuals into future soldiers through a rigorous education program spanning at least three years. One such school was constructed using stonework on the banks of the Seyhan River. This historic edifice, which served as a Military High School between 1883 and 1932, was subsequently converted into an exclusive girls' high school and continued to serve as one until 1998. Today, it has been transformed into a "Culture and Art Museum", preserving its rich heritage for generations to come.
