You can’t take photos inside the Palace so I am afraid all you are getting of the more recent Palace residence of the Sultans is outside shots
I’m so glad you liked Istanbul. It is one of my favorite cities. Amazing place. In fact, this cruise of yours is one I would like to have taken. Interesting places and a bit more time to enjoy them.
LOL! From the thumbnail, my eyes decided this was a picture of books
locked to a desk, like in medieval times.
