Details, Details, Details

At the Topkapi Palace (which you can see more of in my other posts here) I was amazed at the details and intricacies that this place had! Every ceiling has an immaculate display of calligraphy and detailed artwork. The walls, doors, windows--even floors--are also not ignored.
