Kumkapı (meaning 'sand gate' in Turkish) is a quarter in Fatih district of Istanbul. It is located along the northern shore of Marmara Sea. Up to recent times, Kumkapı is the center of the Armenian community of the city, boasting a school and several churches. It is also where the seat of the Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople is located. The quarter is famous for its many fish restaurants; therefore attracting many local and foreign tourists round the year.


In the Byzantine period, the area was known in Greek as Kontoskàlion.


Earlier Kumkapı had a station on the suburban railway line Sirkeci-Halkalı but that station was permanently closed when Marmaray opened in 2013. Kumkapı is also easily accessible by sea.
