In 1924, the palace was converted into a museum that is home to some of the most important holy relics of Islam, including Mohammed's cloak and sword. The palace complex itself was a miniature city that consisted of mosques, libraries, stables, harems, kitchens, treasuries etc. At its glory the palace complex was home to over 4000 people.
