About Placeses

Topkapı Palace; The great palace of the Ottoman sultans from the 15th to the 19th centuries, housing an exquisite collection of crystal, silver and Chinese porcelain; robes worn by the sultans and their families, miniatures, the Holy Mantle; Chamber of Sacred Relics. 

Rustem Pasa Mosque; The Rüstem Pasha Mosque is famous for its large quantities of exquisite  Iznik tiles, set in a very wide variety of beautiful floral and geometric designs, which cover not only the facade of the porch but also the mihrab, minbar, walls, columns and on the façade of the porch outside. These tiles exhibit the use of a tomato-red color characteristic of the early iznik period (1555-1620), and no other mosque in Istanbul makes such a lavish use of these tiles.
