Harem-i Hümayun, where the families and concubines of the Ottoman Rulers stay, is perceived as a “mystery world” due to its closed structure to the outside World. The Harem attracted the attention of many Western travellers during the Ottoman period. The beginning of dealing with the topic of the harem in the Turkish novel corresponds to about a quarter century later, after the Ottoman Empire collapsed after 1950. What is surprising is that; The point of view of the Turkish authors after the 1950s is quite similar to the viewpoint of Western travellers. Among the reasons of this are; the popularisation of writings of Western travellers as well as the assimilation of the right information, and the writers who are concerned about their high sales discover that this is attractive to the reader.
