Ottoman Janissary Band in Topkapi palace

The Ottoman Janissary Band will perform in Topkapi palace 5 days a week (except Tuesdays & Sundays) during the busy summer period in 2008 to entertain visitors. They already used to do it on irregular basis but now it will be more frequent. The performance will start at 14:30 in front of the 3rd gate of the palace (known as Babussaade or Gate of Felicity).

Normally, these Jannissary bands are organized at the Military museum in Istanbul, and sometimes local tourism authorities organize it in Dolmabahce or Topkapi palaces for the visitors.
