The imperial garden of the Topkapi palace has about 60 acres ground. Magnificient with its flowers especialy in early spring, Good place for jogging but female runners should have proper attire in this muslim country. Not busy at all.

The colorful park is next to the Topkapi Palace and the Archaeological museum. The park is filled with colorful flowers and fountains. Its a long park and must visit in the morning for a walk.

The park is located near Topkapi Palace and is a nice place to sit quietly and watch the world go by. Its a quiet haven after the hustle and bustle of the square outside the Hagia Sophia museum.

This walled garden, previously the domain of the ladies of the harim, is huge and magical. Visit it in tulip season. You won't believe your eyes. Enjoy the towering trees and the diversity of bird life they nurture.

overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
