Topkapi Palace (Topkapi Sarayi), Istanbul, was the seat of the Ottoman Sultans from Mehmet the Conqueror in the 1450s until Mahmut II in 1839.

This is the Middle Gate (Bab-s Selm), between the First Court (Birinci Avlu), Court of the Janissaries, and the Second Court.

   
Much of the palace was closed when we visited. We just whirled through.
