Museum for Islamic Arts

Museum for Islamic Arts

The Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum  is a museum located in Sultanahmet Square. 

Constructed in 1524, the building was formerly the palace of Pargalı Ibrahim Pasha,

who was the second grand vizier to Suleiman the Magnificent, and husband of the Sultan's sister, Hatice Sultan.

The collection includes notable examples of Islamic calligraphy, tiles, and rugs 

as well as ethnographic displays on various cultures in Turkey, particularly nomad groups.

These displays recreate rooms or dwellings from different time periods and regions.
