Books can be written about the Harem, I have N.M. Penzer’s “The Harem” on the table as I write. However, to explain all the intricacies and legends would go too far. So I just present you with a series of pictures that roughly follow the tour I made. Remember that a harem in essence is no more than the private quarters of the sultan. Huge crowds of eunuchs and sultans wives were not a necessary ingredient, although for some times they were.
