Summary: The cultural heritage of the Ottoman Empire has traditionally been presented to us through its monuments - mosques, mausoleums, palaces, baths - and its high arts, such as court painting and calligraphy. Our understanding of Ottoman culture has thus come from a world created by and for sultans, viziers and the elite of the Empire.
