The small building next to the kiosk is the Wardrobe Chamber (Esvap Odası) that was built during the same period. The Wardrobe Chamber held the ceremonial clothes and jewels of the Sultans. The Wardrobe Chamber situated near the Mecidiye Pavilion is the only building bearing that name known to us today at the Topkapı Palace.

Wardrobe Chambers where the clothes and jewels of Sultans were kept existed in the Palace ever since the time of Fatih Sultan Mehmet. The task of appropriate conservation of the imperial wearing apparel was assumed in the early period by the Dülbent Ağası (Muslin Master). In later periods, the function was fulfilled by the Esvabcıbaşı (Head of the Garments’ Custodians) and his crew.
