ISTANBUL DAY 2 - TOPKAPI PALACE PART 2

The Topkapi Palace is now a museum. Other than browsing through the beautiful palace buildings, there were certain parts of the place which housed many historic exhibits but cameras were not allowed inside.


The palace showcased many important Muslim relics and one of the main attractions were the beards of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The strands of beards were put in individual small bottles which would be quite impossible to see from far.


There was a long line formed where visitors had to move from one room to another to observe the exhibition. At times, the line would move a bit slow and there would be a bigger crowd of curious people at certain station as they would try to spend more time there.
