The ancient palace of the victorious sultans who overcame the eastern Roman empire and eventually established the Ottoman empire centered here in Istanbul and ruling a huge section of the Middle East and North Africa. Some of the spectacular items I saw 41 years ago are missing and photography is not allowed. However, in one small room there was an incredible collection of artifacts which would be hard to prove or disprove. Mohammed's footprint beard and tooth, St John's arm and a piece of his skull, David's sword, Joseph's hat, and Abraham's bowl.
