about topkapi palace

The Topkapı Palace is a large palace in Istanbul, Turkey, that was primarily used as a residence of the Ottoman Sultans for approximately 400 years of their 624-year reign. This majestc palace complex has a lot of enchanting stories and beliefs attached to it from the past. It was home to Selim the Sot, who drowned after drinking too much champagne; İbrahim the Mad, who lost his reason after being imprisoned for 22 years by his brother MuratIV; and Roxelana, a former concubine who became the powerful consort of Süleyman the Magnificent.

A visit to Topkapı can not be rushed as there is so much to explore and requires at least three hours, but preferably longer. If one is short on time, then the Harem, the Treasury and the rooms around the İftariye Baldachin should be explored.
