Topkapi Palace, Istanbul: 277 reviews and 656 photos
The Conqueror?s Pavilion and the arcade of the pavilion in front is one of the oldest buildings inside the palace. It is one of the pavilions built under Sultan Mehmed II in 1460, when the palace was first constructed. Since then it was also used to store works of art and treasure. Nowadays it houses the Imperial Treasury. All the rooms open onto the Third Courtyard through a monumental arcade.
The pavilion originally consisted of three rooms, a terrace overlooking the Sea of Marmara, a basement and adjoining hamam, or Turkish bath.
