To the left, the exterior of the crown
prince's apartment and a minaret in
the background.
Below is a view across the courtyard to
the apartments of the royal wives.
A view across the courtyard in the harem. The grassy area
used to be a swimming pool.
I hope you enjoyed the visit to Istanbul and the Topkapi Palace and
will join me as I visit other locations. Best wishes, L.J. Bear
