In Ottoman Turkish, “Topkapi Saray.” Home to Ottoman Sultans for 400 years. Construction began in 1459. As many as 4,000 people could have resided in this complex. For me, the harem was the coolest part; the place where the eunuchs, the Queen mother, and the King’s & Prince’s concubines, lived and hung out.
