Beautiful tile designs

The Sultan's Tomb was a showcase of Iznik tiles with this panel on the outside near the entry door.

Mother of pearl inlay on the doors.
Inside a visual feast of pattern with repeated colours if blue, red and white.
The tiled panels covered the inside walls with lots of natural light flooding in from large windows or doors. A small space compared to what we had just seen, but beautiful and a fitting resting place for a royal family.
