Photographs of the monuments of Istanbul, Turkey. Just off the Hippodrome in Istanbul is the Palace of Ibrahim Pasa, which now hosts the Turkish & Islamic Arts Museum (Turk ve Islam Eserleri Muzesi).

Ibrahim Pasa was Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent's aide-de-camp, vizier, and eventually his serasker (commander-in-chief). Then, well, he was executed in 1536.

A great location for a palace though.
