Topkapi Palace

Istanbul

13.6/5(2 Ratings)
Ranked 2 of 18 sightseeing in Istanbul
After the 1453 conquest, the palace was built by Mehmet the Conqueror, who lived here until his death in 1481. Visit the opulent pavilions and courtyards, harems, treasury and the hanging gardens, to name a few, and peek into the erstwhile lives of sultans, courtiers, concubines and eunuchs, who lived and worked in this building which once functioned as the court of the Ottoman empire. Tickets cost: Palace: 30 Turkish Lira for adults; free for children below 12 years of age.

      Nice architecture

      Excellent place and must visit, there are lot many other architectural buildings in the near vicinity and b3 covered on foot. Also try the Pomegranate juice sold by local vendors it's something different from what we get here.
