Museum of Islamic Ceramics occupies the palace's ground and first floor.
The palace has several grand halls in the middle of which is the main one.
There is also a fountain built of coloured marble. The principal hall is
covered with a magnificent dome made of stuccoed glass windows. These
windows were appealing to architects of buildings of Islamic architecture
as they serve two basic purposes: On the one hand, they protect the inner
building against winds and dust and deny insects access into the building,
while on the other, they reduce the weight exerted on columns supporting
the arches. Sun light passing through these stuccoed windows turns into
several beautiful colours and creates a serene and relaxing atmosphere
inside. The palace's inner design and walls are rich in arabesque,
calligraphy and floral and geometric patterns that are in harmony with
other ornaments. Its walls are partially ornamented with ceramic tiles
made in Kutahia in Turkey.
museum's light system is designed in such a way as to highlight the
beauty and unique features of the works on display.
