The Galata Tower is a deep state symbol for the British Deep State. During the occupation of Constantinople (Istanbul), Galata Tower was used as an observation tower for intelligence purposes by the British. In those years there was no conical roof on the tower. There was a barrack on the stepped gable. It was used to observe the city. The barrack was added later for intelligence gathering purposes.
