Minarets and moon

moon and suleymaniye camii 269x750 moon and yeni camii  262x750

These minarets are from two different mosques (same evening, same moon). The one on the left is the Süleymaniye Camii, the one on the right is the Yeni Camii. Both of these mosques are on the historic peninsula. The Süleymaniye Mosque was built in 1550-58 by Mimar Sinan. The New Mosque (Yeni Camii) was built in 1660-65 by Davut Ağa, an apprentice to Sinan. (There will likely be pictures of the interiors of these mosques at a future date, so stay tuned. I know you will).
