The chief architect in this period was the Persian Alaüddin, also known as Acem Ali.

The sultans of that period preferred to spend more time in their new palaces along the Bosphorus.

In 1856, Sultan Abdulmejid I decided to move the court to the newly built Dolmabahçe Palace.

The first courtyard was the most accessible, while the fourth courtyard and the harem were the most inaccessible.Topkapı Palace is part the Historic Areas of Istanbul, a group of sites in Istanbul that were added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985.The palace complex is located on the Seraglio Point (Sarayburnu), a promontory overlooking the Golden Horn, where the Bosphorus Strait meets the Marmara Sea.According to an account of the contemporary historian Critobulus of Imbros the sultan "took care to summon the very best workmen from everywhere – masons and stonecutters and carpenters ...For he was constructing great edifices which were to be worth seeing and should in every respect vie with the greatest and best of the past." Accounts differ as to when construction of the inner core of the palace started and was finished.
