Professor Eyüpgiller, ı Last year the wall of the Konyalı Restaurant and the tea garden collapsed due to the ground waters. Groundwater must be drained. In the case of Topkapı Palace, it is clear that the restoration processes need to be accelerated. Obviously, I think the current regulations prevent this acceleration. One of the problems is the restoration projects prepared under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and the long-lasting approval processes in the Cultural Heritage Protection Council, which is a unit of the Ministry of Culture. The protection board system is of course necessary. However, in the structures such as Topkapi Palace, which require urgency, the necessary 'competent scientific delegations can be put into service provided that the system can be rendered,' 'he said.
'A hand always in historical work'
Fatih Köşkü restoration application, where deep cracks occurred, is a separate project from the restoration projects of 2 in the other buildings of the palace. Dr. Kemal Kutgün Eyüpgiller, aki Works in valuable historical buildings can take years. One hand must always be on the historical monument olm.
