Bostancı Natırı

Çuhadar Ağa Has was the third vizier of the chamber. His symbolic duty was to carry the sultan's raincoat, to look at his robes and furs, and to sprinkle money to the people while the sultan was going to prayer. If he was promoted, he would become a silahdar inside the palace, a governor outside the palace, or a sancakbeyi. The Bostancı natır is the keeper of the gardens and orchards of the palace.
