The Topkapi Palace and grounds is a huge place with multiple areas and museums. Photography wasn't allowed in the museums so I got no pictures of the collections of armor, clothing, swords or jewelry, nor the large collection of clocks. I did shoot tons of pictures in the Harem, which we explored first. I'm grateful for that as there were very few tourists until about the time we finished exploring that area. By 1 or 2pm we began to get run over by waves of Asian tour groups and the crowds made it very difficult to view some of the other areas.
