The name Ciragan comes from the word “cerag” which means torch in Persian. The area in which the Palace is located was called Ceragan because of the famous Ottoman parties which were held in tulip gardens with torches. The palace was built during the reign of Abdulmecit and was designed by the Armenian architect Serkis Balyan. The building was constructed using the financial loans that were obtained for restructuring the water system of Istanbul and the construction of a new railway. The construction took 12 years. This is the last palace built by the Ottoman Empire for the royal family.

Great shot, water is a bit dark but I think it adds to the mood.

Great post, agree the water is slightly too dark. Perhaps a 3 shot exposure may have helped in that area...
