Introduction

The Topkapi Palace was the palace of the Ottoman Sultans between 1465 and 1853.

Today, it is one of Istanbul's major landmarks. The articles on display are simply amazing and mind boggling. Most of the articles on display are off limits to taking pictures. If the sultans lived in such times they would have been the most ingenuous and crafty people to say the least and the fact that these have been preserved very well is testament to the Turks' ability to take care about their legacy. For more information about the Topkapi Palace this Guide is a very good start.
