The Topkapi Palace (Seragilio) is a colossal Palace built for the Ottoman kings who lived here for 400 years of their 624 years of sovereignty. A visit to this Palace can fascinate you with the grand living style of the Sultans, the opulent structure with Harems and jewelled decorations.
Pamukkale is a well known town in Turkey that inherits the mystic beauty straight from the fairy tales. The water cascading down the travertine on the lush green hill gives this place a look of extremely haunting collage.

Apart from the above listed attractions, you can also view the ancient theatre and a cemetery with well preserved stone coffins (sarcophagi) adorned with sculpture and inscription. The Antique Pool, a submerged Roman city that was a result of a massive earthquake, is yet another place to be visited in Pamukkale!

Mount Nemrut is a high mountain situated on the south-eastern province of Turkey. It is the best Archaeological site where the heads of the Greek gods are scattered on the vicinity.
