Kiz Kulesi (also known as Maiden's Tower) is a tower sitting on a small islet located in the Bosphorus in Istanbul, Turkey.
The French name Tour de Leandre and Turkish name Kizkulesi both originate from legends. According to the first (which was actually set on the Dardanelles rather than the Bosphorus) the mythological hero Leander used to meet here with his beloved Hero, but one night he was drowned while swimming to the Tower and Hero committed suicide. The second refers to a story about a king of Scutari (Uskudar) who kept his beautiful daughter locked up here.
