Door into the Harem

Door into the Harem

The Harem was the most beautiful part of Topkapi ... full of tiles and light and interesting nooks and crannies. It was the royal residence for the Sultan, his mother, his kids, his 4 approved wives and lots and lots of harem girls (who were slaves but not sexual playthings)
