It was during the times of great Ottoman Empire that the 31st Sultan ordered to build this luxurious place in the year 1843.

When you say palace it is truly a grandeur everywhere from gates and to the walls it welcomes you like a royal too. The interior of this palace is mind blowing and I’m very overwhelmed to see this magnificent creations that up until now is well preserved and protected.

The extraordinary exterior of the palace.

So this is the place that the Royals of Ottoman Empire resides and where they welcome guests from around the world.

I got the chance to take some photos, though it is prohibited to take pictures. I’ve been caught few times and it scares me a bit by surprise because they would yell at you. But forgive me, I just can’t resist my snap behavior on taking photos especially this kind of place.

The interior design of the palace is so exceptional and beyond extravagant.

The chandeliers are one of my favorite in this viewing. I noticed the building inside are divided into many private rooms, ball rooms and big halls. There is one staircase that I’m dying to take picture with, it’s like a fantasy to see but then a security guard will approach you as you enter the step.

Thanks to my husband for having such patience on taking pictures of me as he was carrying Lukas in the baby carrier. I will never leave this beautiful place without a picture of me for my fashion looks. Always dress extra for we are not on vacation everyday. Once we look back memories, happiness is priceless that you came well prepared to be in the photos.

“Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There’s no how-to road map to style. It’s about self expression and, above all, attitude.”
