It records the changes that the buildings have suffered through fire, earthquakes and the endless fight for space. Treasures, kaftans and furnishings are discussed as is food and drink. Above all, the book is about the thousands who lived in the "saray" and what they did and feared and saw, whether they were viziers, students or women.Hide synopsis
