Topkapi Palace Imperial Harem
The Privy Chamber of Sultan Ahmed I was constructed in 1608. The Imperial Harem was the inner sanctum of the Topkapi Palace where the Sultan and his family lived. Standing on a peninsular overlooking the Bosphorus Strait and Golden Horn, Topkapi Palace was the primary residence of the Ottoman sultans for approximately 400 years (1465–1856) of their 624-year reign.
