A little note on Istanbul: Trails of civilization #5: Topkapi Palace (photo gallery)

What do you have in mind when you hear the word Royal Residence?

Huge, beautiful palace? 





Intricately adorned pavilions?                 
Golden statues?






































Vast courtyard with fragrance orange trees and flowers?
Beautiful garden filled with roses? 
Giant chandeliers?

















Well, that's what I have in mind :D..
I guess you will see them all in Topkapi Palace, Istanbul..
After some warming up here, I still have some more to share...






So….Let’s explore more of this amazing place, shall we…
And tell me what you see....

These are some of the pictures that my hubby, Bo and I captured...
Hopefully you enjoy them as much as we do...

  1. I've never seen pictures of the place. I do love the song about it. Istanbul by They Might Be Giants is catchy.
