English: The imperial district of Byzantine Constantinople, with the Great Palace and the approximate locations of its main buildings (based on literary descriptions), the Hippodrome, the Hagia Sophia and the surrounding structures. Surviving or excavated structures are in black, the conjectural outlines of structures in grey, and the shaded portion corresponds to the area occupied by the Sultanahmet Camii and other later structures.
Ελληνικά: Χάρτης της περιοχής του Μεγάλου Παλατίου της Κωνσταντινούπολης. Απεικονίζονται ο Ιππόδρομος, η Αγία Σοφία και η Αγία Ειρήνη, καθώς και τα γειτονικά κτίρια. Η (σκιασμένη) περιοχή του Μεγάλου Παλατίου καλύπτεται σήμερα από το τζαμί Σουλτάν Αχμέτ (το Μπλε Τζαμί) και άλλα κτήρια. Ως εκ τούτου, η διάταξη των κτιρίων του ανακτορικού συμπλέγματος είναι υποθετική, βασιζόμενη σε λογοτεχνικές και ιστορικές αναφορές. Το περίγραμμα των γνωστών/σωζώμενων θεμελίων σημειώνεται με μαύρο, τα υποθετικά με γκρίζο.
