Topkapi Palace, Istanbul: 276 reviews and 651 photos
The Imperial Treasury (Hazine Kogusu) is a vast collection of works of art, jewelry, heirlooms of sentimental value and money belonging to the Ottoman dynasty.
Since the palace became a museum, the same rooms have been used to exhibit these treasures. Most of the objects in the Imperial Treasury consisted of gifts, spoils of war, or pieces produced by palace craftsmen.
It consists of two floors raised on a terrace above the garden, built at the top of promontory on a cliff with a magnificent view from its porch on the Sea of Marmara and the Bosporus.
Unfortunately it’s strictly forbidden to make photos and videos there… So - only one casual pic.
