Our hotel was really close to the palace so we always had to pass the palace. It makes impression, really. Once we went in and had a full excursion there. I was shocked how poor jewels sultans had. really small stones, lack of gold! The palace itself and harem are interesting to visit but take the audio guide to have the full info.
