Tour the museum with a guide and see rare rugs, Iranian treasures, calligraphy, and more. This collection of artifacts and historical items was originally located in the community dining room of the Süleymaniye Mosque complex, and later moved to a somewhat more glamorous location, the Ibrahimsa Palace, next to the Blue Mosque.
Witness the refined details and patterns of the rare carpets of the Seljuk Empire, and imagine wealthy people flaunting luxury dressed in fine fabrics from the Iranian and Caucasian regions.
See collections of handwritten calligraphy and get up close to the imperial edicts, ancient koran, and other written works against which today’s quick text messages are embarrassing!
The guide will explain the complexities and history of the museum and ancient palace, and you will see wooden, glass, ceramic and stone items by artists from the historical Islamic regions. This beautiful museum near the famous Blue Mosque is a must see!
