As visitors to Topkapi Palace approach the Bab-i Humayun, the great gateway leading into the outer courtyard of the Palace, their attention will inevitably by two things: The first thing to attract their attention will be the monumental fountain on their right. This magnificent monument, with its wide eaves, the large central dome with the four secondary domes surrounding it, and the lovely tile adorning all four walls...

Cistern Bar
One of the most special part of the Garden is the 1400 years old Roman Cistern which is just a small copy of the well known Sarnic Restaurant. At a hot summer evening, the guests can chose to drink in our garden, right under the stars or in our small cistern bar with the smell of ancient times. This unique building services to the guests as a bar. It is fully airconditioned and ready to host our guests at hot summer or cold winter evenings. A lazy afternoon under the shadows of linden trees with the beauty and smell of flowers, a cup of Turkish Tea or a cold bevarage in hand with the snacks on the table.
