The Baghdad Kiosk is situated in the Forth Courtyard on the right side of the terrace with fountain. It was built to commemorate the Baghdad Campaign of Murad IV after 1638.
It closely resembles the Yerevan Kiosk. The three doors to the porch are located between the sofas. The façade is covered with marble, strips of porphyry.

The blue-and-white tiles on the walls are copies of the tiles of the Circumcision Room, right across the terrace. From the mid-18th century onwards, the building was used as the library of the Privy Chamber.
