Description

Topkapi, one of the world’s oldest palaces in Istanbul, Turkey, is a museum.



Distinguished by charming interiors and a practical layout, the Topkapi Palace is the second palace built in Istanbul in 1479. Although time has damaged the palace to a certain extent, it is an excellent example of the rich culture of the bygone era.

Apart from the beautiful Ottoman architecture, the museum area is also an interesting storehouse of artefacts like porcelain, weapons, Islamic manuscripts, decorations, jewellery and more.

The lush surroundings in which the palace is set accentuates the beauty of the place. Also, the historic significance attached to this palace attracts several visitors every year.

There are four courts surrounded by gardens and a picnic area. The spatial courtyards hold remarkable paintings which remain intact even today.

Topkapi Palace was home to many Ottoman Sultans until the Abdulmecid I reign, in a period of four centuries. The construction of the palace was by Mehmed II in 1453. This palace was then an ancient olive grove and covered... more an area of 700 square meters. It was enclosed with walls that were 1400 meters long length. This historic building is worth visiting.

A fine collection of relics from the Ottoman past, and the cafe on the seafront. The hour standing in the ticket queue was trying, but once inside, it was an hour well-spent. From horse-drawn carriages, jewels, ceramics and relics from... more Islamic history there's a lot to see and study. I did not go to the harem though.
