Strolling around Istanbul came to be our favorite activity while visiting for eight days. The major sights are beautiful, of course, but are mega populated. This mosque, we found all to ourselves. Being able to inhabit this mosque alone gave it a special feeling rather than just that of a tourist sight. We were able to just walk in, take pictures, and admire the intricate details. When we were leaving, I saw a small pathway that led around the back of the mosque, curious, I pulled my husband back and I snapped this shot. Unlike anything we saw.
