Istanbul Pics

17 Oct


The Mosque of Sultan Ahmet better known as the Blue Mosque.


The Aya Sofya or Haghia Sofia was the Church of the Divine Wisdom and regarded as the greatest church in Christendom up until the fall of Constantinople when it became a mosque.


The Grand Bazaar, more than just shopping. A labyrinthine of colour since the mid 15th Century.


Little courtyards are revealed if you explore the edges of the bazaar.


Up the Galata Tower – amazing views over the city and Golden Horn. Worth the uphill trek.
