The biggest difference between it and the Chinese palace is that there is no central axis-symmetric layout of the Chinese imperial palace, and there is no uniform color. It is built on the seashore and extends from the hillside to the seashore. It consists of a four-entry palace and a palace into the harem. It consists of a 700,000-square-meter deep palace, showing the authority of the Turkish Sultan. Everything in the palace is self-contained. country.

Istanbul was once considered by me to be the capital of Turkey, but it was not because it was really too busy and famous. The Toplab Palace is a very worthwhile sight! The largest gate of the
Toprapa Palace is the Gate of the Emperor, which faces the Hagia Sophia Square. This door first leads to a park known as the "first court." In this park there is an Alini church that was once used as a ammunition depot, and there is a mint behind the church.

Chongjing Gate, also known as the Zhongmen, is the entrance to the second courtyard. The gate with the cannon has two octagonal spires and the construction period is unknown. The architecture of the Respected Gate is similar to that of the Byzantine architecture. It is estimated that the Respected Gate is built to mimic the Santa Barbara Gate (the cannon's gate).
