An Istanbul Tour Part II/ Istanbul Turu Devamı...

And here I gave a pose in front of the sunset of Istanbul...

Elif'e böylesi bir gün geçirdiğimiz için teşekkürler...






The Grand Bazaar...Well, I love there very much since you may find anything you want:) It was one of the largest covered markets in Istanbul when it was completed in 1461.

Kapalı Çarşı...Alışveriş yapmayı sevdiğim harika bir yer:) 1461'den beri Istanbul'un en büyük alışveriş yeri...

This is the Galata Tower.It was built in 1348 A.D and thorughout the history it was known as Christea Turris (The Tower of Christ).

Galata Kulesi...Tarih boyunca İsa'nın Kulesi olarak da bilinmiştir.

The Head of Medusa...







This is the Basilica Cistern...It was built in the 6th century during the reign of Justinian I. It is also known as the sunken palace.The cistern has the capacity to store 100,000 tons of water, despite being virtually empty today with only a few feet of water lining the bottom.
There are big fish in that water. Some people throw coins to the water in order to make their wish come true.

Yerebatan Sarnıcı...Bizans İmparatoru Jüstinyen zamanında 6. yüzyılda inşa edilen sarnıçın sularında yukarıda gördüğünüz balıklar yüzüyor...














Archangel Gabriel...9th centuy...Cebrail mozaiği...

















Hagia Sophia...Its origin was an eastern orthodox catedral in 562. Then during the 1200s it was a Roman Catholic Church. After the Ottomans conquered Istanbul, it began to serve as a mosque, however the Ottomans didn't change the origin of the church so you may see the paintings of Jesus and the Arab writings together on its walls. It has been a museum since 1931.

Aya Sofya...Binlerce yıl kilise olarak hizmet ettikten sonra camiye çevrilen ancak miamrisine dokunulmayan bu harika eser 1931'den beri müze olarak kullanılmaktadır.

Atatürk'ün boza içtiği bardak...
Tarihi Vefa Bozacısı...
