Iftaree Pavilion

The Iftar Gazebo (The Moonlight Observation Point) Constructed in 1640 during the reign of Sultan İbrahim, this small gazebo juts out from the courtyard between the Baghdad Pavilion and the Circumcision Chamber. The structure has a roof that features a tulipshaped device and is supported by four gold-plated copper columns. In addition to its use for holiday festivities, the gazebo was also the place where sultans would break their fast in the evening—this fast-breaking is known as iftar—whenever the month of Ramadan fell in the summertime.
