New Mosque, Istanbul – Turkey

New Mosque - Istanbul

This is the New Mosque of Istanbul. Having been completed in 1665 it’s not that new anymore, but why quibble over details. The mosque is on the Golden Horn near the Galata Bridge. I love to come down here in and see all the “new” buildings glow in the afternoon sun.

[I travelled to Istanbul thanks to, who as of 2013 now cover Turkey in the Eurail passes.]
