A Brief History of Etimesgut
It is understood that the first traces of settlement here go back to 800 BC according to the archaeological finds in the excavation in Etimesgut. When The “Phrygian Lion” in the district was first discovered in the region it is understood that it was used as a residence by the Phrygians in the 7th century BC.
The history of the district is largely the same as Ankara, as it is close to Ankara. The region remained under the rule of Lydia, Persia, Galatians, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman Empires. It is thought that the name of the town was "Amaksis" in the early ages. Later, the name of the region was changed to "Etimesgut". In 1990, it was separated from Yenimahalle and became a district.
First Modern Constructions in Etimesgut
The first modern constructions in Etimesgut started in 1924 as a 50-house project built by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk to accommodate Turkish refugees from Bulgaria. Etimesgut's population started to increase rapidly from the 1950s, as people began to migrate from the countryside to the city. The construction of mass housing projects and public lodgements such as Elvankent, Eryaman, and Güzelkent projects started to prevent unplanned settlements due to the increasing population. The number of real estate in Turkey started to increase rapidly thanks to these mass housing projects and public lodgements.
