The Eyalet of Teme?var (Ottoman Turkish: ; Ey?let-i T?mv?r), known as Eyalet of Yanova after 1658, was a first-level administrative unit (eyalet) of the Ottoman Empire located in the Banat region of Central Europe.
Besides Banat, the province also included area north of the Mure? River, part of the Cri?ana region. Its territory is now divided between Hungary, Romania, and Serbia. Its capital was Teme?var (Romanian: Timi?oara).
The name of the province in Ottoman Turkish was Eyâlet-i Teme?var or Eyâlet-i T?mvar (in Modern Turkish: Teme?var Eyaleti or Tamvar Eyaleti), in Hungarian was Temesvári vilajet, in Romanian was Eialetul Timi?oarei or Pa?alâcul Timi?oara, in Serbian was or Temi?varski ejalet. The province was named after its administrative seat, Teme?var. The Turkish name Teme?var is given after the Hungarian one, Temesvár meaning "Castle on the Temes" (River).
The Eyalet of Teme?var was formed in 1552, when the Hungarian castle of Temesvár defended by the troop of István Losonczy was captured by the Ottoman troops led by Kara Ahmed Pasha on July 26, 1552 and existed until 1716, when it was conquered by the Habsburg Monarchy. The Eyalet was led by a vali (governor) or beylerbey (sometimes with position of pasha or vizir), whose residence was at the former Hunyadi Castle in Teme?var. In 1718, the Habsburgs formed a new province in this region, named the Banat of Temeswar.
