The building of Regional Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre consists of two parts.The first part which was constructed in 1881 is still using for archiving and dinning hall. In 1881 when it was constructed it has begun to serve for official land registry operations and called "Defter-i Hakani Nezareti" ( The Ministry of State Responsible for Land Registry and Cadastre).

The second part at the Sultanahmet square is used for Regional Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre building was constructed later. In 1897 the place of the second part was bought by giving 34.000 Kuruş (1 Turkish Lira=100 Kuruş) to a restaurant and two driver shops.

Then today's building has been constructed in 1910 by destroying those two shops and architectured by Mehmet Vedat Efendi designed the building in a harmony to the monumental glory of the adjoining, İbrahim Paşa Palace. The four storey building has pointed arches on the outside and is decorated with ceramic tiles, one of the important characteristics of the National Architecture Movement.

In 1920, with a new decision the possession of the building transfered to Treasury, however it has been registered to the name of Land Registry and Cadastre. However it has transfered to Treasury, it is still giving activity as Regional Directorate of Land Registry and Cadastre.

One of the most important groups of the bound registers is the Taḥrir Defterleri (or defter-i hakani, the Cadastre Records). They contain, in detailed (mofassal) and brief (ejmal, mojmal) versions, economic surveys (taḥrir) of the districts listing all the human and economic resources, town-by-town and village-by-village. These registers provide very important and detailed social, economic, demographic, and legal information for scholars
