Şehzade Mosque

Am I drowning you in images? If thats the case then I'm sorry, but I have so many pictures from out trip to Istanbul, I dont ever think Im gonna run out of content.

Anyways, Şehzade Mosque is located on the third hill in Istanbul. That really doesnt say much does it? I know, but if you're there and you google it, you'll find it. And theres quite a story for all of you history geeks out there. The mosque is also located just beside the Green marble Stone which markes the center of old Istanbul. The arcitect wanted to build the the mosque at the center of the city, so after making the proper measurements within the surrounding area, he determined that this point was the center, and put up this green pillar.
Doesnt have to be harder than that huh?

I am always quite cautious when entering buildings of faith, even though I have done my homework, I never fully know if the people think its alright. That was not the case here, I got a smile and a nod, so I knew I was in the clear enter.
