Picture of Topkapi Dagger

Shot Notes

The Imperial Treasury (Hazine) of Topkapi Palace is now included in the general admission ticket and well worth a visit. It has a vast collection of art, jewelry and precious stones on display in three rooms. The second room holds the greatest pieces, with this Topkapi dagger as the star of the show. It is a golden hilt, ornamented with three large emeralds, topped by a golden watch and emerald lid.
