Photographer's Note

This section in the Topkapi Palace together with the apartments of the Sultan forms the largest and the most important part of the harem. It was constructed after the Queen mother moves into the palace in the late 16 th century but had to be rebuilt after the fire if 1666... so I read in the interior...

The idea of the harem came to the Ottoman sultans from the Byzantines...
Before coming to Anatolia, Turks did not have harems... Amazing fact!
After the conquest of Istanbul, sultans built the Topkapi Palace step by step. Parallel to it, a harem was also begun.
Eventually it became a big complex consisting of a few hundred rooms. The harem was not just a prison full of women kept for the sultan's pleasure.
It was his family quarters. Security in the harem was provided by black eunuchs. Valide Sultan (Queen Mother) was the head of the harem. She had enormous influence on everything that took place there and frequently on her son too...
You can figure it by this image...
