He is the greatest chief of the palace after Kızalağası. He was with the sultan in the morning prayer. The börk on his head is gold embroidered on red, and the part that is turned on the back is also made red. He wore a gold-embroidered top and a gold-embroidered cloth hung from his shoulder. He carried the sultan's sword on his other shoulder. They usually wore red shalwar and yellow Yemeni.
