Mosques of Istanbul

One of the defining features of the Istanbul skyline are the soaring minarets of the many mosques. From the stateliness of the original imperial Fatih Mosque to the grandeur of the Blue Mosque, the importance of the Islamic faith is seen and felt throughout the city. In addition to being important religious symbols, they are also beautiful in their own right as amazing examples of architecture. You can find more photos here.
