Istanbul – The Harem in the Topkapi Palace

The harem is the private area of the Sultan and his family. It also held about 300 concubines who has been brought to the palace as slaves or captured from the Eastern European countries. Although the Harem is large it must have been very busy with all those people.

Below are some photos of the tiles in the harem. These are for my creative friends. The photos ‘almost’  inspire me to do Appliqué.imageimage
