Topkapi Palace is a large palace in Istanbul that was the former residence and seat of governance of the Ottoman Turks for almost 400 years. 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.
