  • The tomb of Sultan is to the East of Hagia Sophia. Admission is free, but the baggage inspection. You are so heavily is divided into five buildings not, each Sultan and his family are buried.

  • It's Free! The architecture and detailed craftsmanship is worth your time. Won't take you long to check out each tomb. Very nicely designed and in great condition. They have robes for women at each tomb when you enter.
  • Astonishing sultan tombs, decorated by ornamental tiles, wood carvings and stone and wood inlay. Worth to see. A magic place.
  • only garvs very sad place but it is well designed and filled with flowers
  • Very interesting architecture. Check it out if you are here. No ticket required.
  • It is the grave of a sultan who is burried alongside with his children and wives who were killed on the day the sultan died, by the eldest son so that the other children cannot claim rights to the throne. So sad place to visit.
