Art and Architecture - Ottoman tiles in the Topkapı Palace. Often featuring geometric or floral patterns, tiles help to keep the rooms of the palace cool during hot summer weather. İznik and Kütahya are the most well-known types of tiles found in the palace, dating from the 15th and 18th centuries, respectively.
