Ottoman Visions

ottoman1We begin our tour at Topkapi Palace, which, from the 15th to the 19th century, was the principal residence of the Ottoman Sultans. We will visit the fabulous Imperial Treasury and the Baghdad Kiosk. Topkapi Palace is now a museum and has unrivalled collections of jewelry, including the Spoonmaker’s Diamond, the 3rd largest in the world, Ottoman court costumes and ceramics, notably one of the world’s finest collections of Chinese celadon ceramics, much of it gifts from other rulers.

Interestingly, some of the ceramics have a special glaze that was said to change color in the presence of poison. We also visit the Imperial Armory, displaying centuries of Ottoman weaponry. But perhaps, the loveliest features of Topkapi Palace are its courtyards with their ancient trees, and it is easy to imagine the sultans strolling here far from the cares of state and empire. Then we visit the Harem Section. The Harem section of the Topkapi Palace is made up of about 400 rooms scattered around small inner courts. Throughout the history of the palace, the Harem quarters under-went alterations continuously. It was the private quarters of the Sultan’s residence where his mother, sisters, wives, children and other members of the family, as well as the servants and eunuchs lived.
Throughout the centuries, many have been told about these private quarters of the palace, entrance to which was strictly prohibited to outsiders.However, some of these must be regarded as myth, and the information backed by evidence points to way of life in the Harem not as eccentric as people have led to believe, but nevertheless interesting. The conbucines ( Cariye ) to serve the Sultan and his family were hand-picked from the most beautiful and healty young maidens of various races or were given to the Sultan as gifts.These girls, who were admitted to Harem at an age barely out of childhood, were trained for years under the strictest discipline.After becoming perfectly familiar with the rules and customs of the palace,they were allowed to serve the Sultan. Some of these girls were able to attract the attention of the Sultan and hence his favours, and occasionally even to become wives.
