Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum

Constructed in 1524, the building was formerly the palace of İbrahim Pasha, who was the first grand vizier to Suleiman the Magnificent.
The museum collection includes notable examples of Islamic calligraphy, tiles, and rugs as well as ethnographic displays on various cultures in Turkey.
See the originals if you are curious about the details of the ornaments on the carpets: there is a grey arrow at the top right of each photo for this purpose.
