Thanks, that's truly remarkable, although I don't doubt that the full effect isn't conveyed in the picture. When visiting old buildings I've always been more interested in the private rooms rather than the large reception halls (which probably haven't changed much). As you said, many times the focus is placed on the person, for many reasons. This is very blatantly shown in places like the Dolmabahçe palace, a Baroque trinket build long after Baroque was out of fashion, but retaining its focus on symmetry and, of course, on the Sultan.
