First court

Many people may not see this as part of the saray complex, as it is open to the general public and can be used as part of a route from Hagia Sofya to the Mint and Archaeological Museums. It also holds the Hagia Irene, a former Byzantine church.

Going up a slight hill one reaches the gate to the next courtyard, and it is there that one must present the ticket bought s bit earlier to the right side of the court.
