This is a fountain in the bed room. That time there was no tv or cd-player... and this is the way the Sultans used to make a noise not to let their own noise to be overheard!

The "fruit" room
The walls of this room are richly decorated with fruit paintings. Its decoration is influenced by the european style.
The treasury is made up of the sultanÕs personal possecions and gifts given by European, African and Far Eastern countries.
The Topkapi Palace was the home of the Ottoman sultans for nearly 400 years, and from here the sultans ruled the Ottoman Empire.
When visiting Topkapi, dont miss the Harem, the private quarters of the sultan and his family. It is a whole town itself, with its own kitchen, hospital and baths.
Note: generally speaking an 'i' at the end of a word in turkish is pronounced 'uh'. Topkapi = 'tope-COP-uh'.
