Istanbul is full of amazing architect! Here is the the tallest tower in Istanbul the Galata Tower. I heard a rumor that the top of the tower is used to spot fires in the city.

On 11 May 1747, the Ottoman Padishah Mahmud the First sent an embassy with valuable gifts and led by Kesriyeli Ahmed Pasha to Nadir Shah. Among the gifts which Sultan Mahmud sent was a particularly outstanding dagger whose handle and sheath were decorated with precious stones. The Treasury Master had had this dagger made by the foremost jewelers of Istanbul, having provided all the stones necessary from the Treasury.
