" Palace Procession" Topkapi Palace Tip by Phalaenopsis03

Topkapi Palace, Istanbul: 275 reviews and 646 photos

On the Wednesday that we visited the Topkapi Palace, we were fortunate enough to witness this ceremonial procession take place in the Second Court. Unfortunately however, I didn't get to inquire as to the purpose of the ritualistic event, but do notice the bold and vibrant colors of their costumes. So glad for our timing, it was a neat sight to behold.
