Topkapi Palace, Istanbul: 277 reviews and 656 photos

 
 

Shortly after the conquest of Istanbul Mehmet the conqueror started to build the palace. After that sultans lived here for almost 400 years until sultan Abdülmecid I left Topkapi for Dolmabahce Palace in 1853.
The palace is not one single building but several buildings around four big courtyards.
