Although documents indicate that Sinan built some forty pavilions and
palaces, the most original example to have reached us is the Pavilion of Murad
III at the Topkapi Palace (1578). It consists of a square structure covered
with a dome and ! its pendentives and has a antechamber. Inside, a fire place is
situated on one side and an ornamental fountain on the other, with inset
cupboards and alcoves surrounded by a tile-covered wall pierced with windows in
the upper part. The dome is decorated with malakari trowel work. The pavilion
is supported by arches and there is a large pool on the ground level.
