Dolmabahçe Palace, Istanbul, Turkey

I was not happy after knowing that we will not be visiting Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, Turkey. Our tourist guide told us that it was under renovation at the time we will be visiting it. Instead of that, he told us that we will visit Dolmabahçe Palace.

Since it is not allowed to take pictures inside the palace rooms, I only have an image taken from its entrance. This is a very interesting palace with notable architecture both inside and out.

This palace is located in the Beşiktaş district of Istanbul, Turkey, on the European coastline of the Bosphorus strait. served as the main administrative center of the Ottoman Empire from 1856 to 1922.
