This is quite frankly the most beautiful palace we’ve ever laid eyes on. The saddening part is that the amazing parts are on the inside and no photos are allowed. If you want to see it, you should go and visit Istanbul. If your name happens to be Obama, you might be able to arrange to stay there for a night.
