Topkapi Palace, what a disappointment

For years I have listened to stories of what a fabulous place is Topkapi Palace.It shows all the richness, power of the great Ottoman Empire.

Bull Shit!

The palace was far from being impressive yet empty.Yes empty, the Harem was a total disappointment.The empty walls painted with cheap white color showed nothing.

The only remarkable section of the palace was the Holy Relics section that contained rod of Moses,hand of St. John the Baptist and swords of prophet Mohammad.

Abi mimarisi guzeldi be. Adalet kulesi vardi mesela. Sirin binalari vardi. Mutevazi bi saray. Dolmabahce de kendine gore guzel tabi, ikisinin yeri ayri bence.
