The palace has the world's largest crystal chandelier, weighing 4,500 kilograms, crystal from the United Kingdom, 60 feet, and a crystal staircase. The last six emperors of the
Ottoman Empire lived here and were known as the New Royal Palace. This period is the decline of the Ottoman Empire. The extreme luxury inside the palace is in stark contrast to the decline of national power.
