Janissaries to Introduce Ottoman Weapons at Topkapı Palace

The weapons section of Istanbul’s Topkapı Palace is being entirely redesigned and will soon display short animations and films featuring Ottoman soldiers and weapons culture.


According to a written statement released by the Istanbul Provincial Administration, the renovation work at the Topkapı Palace Weapons Section, which served as the Foreign Treasury Building during the Ottoman Empire, was recently finished using the latest technological equipment.

Also, it will be possible to see the weapons used by the Ottoman military in chronological order.
