"İçkiye benzer bir şey var bu havalarda
Kötü ediyor insanı, kötü...
Hele bir hasretlik oldu mu serde;
Sevdiğin başka yerde,
Sen başka yerde.
Dertli ediyor insanı, dertli.

İçkiye benzer bir şey var bu havalarda,
Sarhoş ediyor insanı, sarhoş"

Welcome to Topkapi Palace, the chief residence and administrative headquarters of the Ottoman Sultans during the 15th century. It also had a special area designated for the Sultan's harem. The Sultan had 4 official wives and almost 300 concubines. Many of the concubines of the Imperial harem were reputed to be among the most beautiful of women in the Ottoman Empire. Many of them were Caucasians, Georgians, and Abkhazians. This resulted in the Sultan producing 100 children. From today's perspective and standards it's hard to imagine, but a lot of women wanted to be in the Harem. Being a part of the harem meant physical and economical security, with the possibility of gaining some power in both the palace and the Empire, and possibility of becoming the mother of a future sultan. Were all women willingly there though? Absolutely not. Some female slaves who worked as servants were taken as prisoners from the battlefields during wars and brought to the palace, or were given by the European emperors as a "gift." #TopKapiPalace #OttomanEmpire #Sultans #Harem #Constantinople #Istanbul #Turkey #Eurasia #Turkey #Eurasia #InstaPassport #InstaTravel #IGTravel #Travelgram #Wanderlust #Worlderlust #LonelyPlanet

The Hagia Sophia, also known as the Church of the Divine Wisdom, was a cathedral built in Constantinople during the 6th century (532–537) under the direction of the Byzantine emperor Justinian I. It is widely considered the most important Byzantine structure and one of the world’s great monuments. During Roman rule, it was an Empire Church, and as a result, was where emperors were crowned. Hagia Sophia remained a functioning church until May 29, 1453, when Sultan Mehmet, conquered the city of Constantinople. He was amazed at the beauty of the Hagia Sophia and immediately converted it into a mosque. Hagia Sophia served as the principal mosque of Istanbul for almost 500 years. It became a model for many of the Ottoman mosques of Istanbul such as the Blue Mosque and Suleiman Mosque. #HagiaSophia #Cathedral #Mosque

Byzantine, Roman & Ottoman empires to the Republic of Turkey it is now. From a Cathedral to a Mosque, and from Constantinople to Istanbul - Hagia Sophia has seen it all. I feel the urge of reading school's history textbook again 😍

#Jung said you must embrace the dark, as well as the light. But sometimes, life sweeps you along - you just see people floating by. Everyone is so caught up in the moment. It's only later that you realize what happened and how alarming it all was. You read books and you finally try to put it all together, and you don't know what to believe. But it's very important to understand it all - the #dark and the #light. #EveningBlues #EatPrayLove #Constantinople #Istanbul #Turkey #Eurasia #InstaPassport #InstaTravel #IGTravel #Travelgram #Wanderlust #Worlderlust #LonelyPlanet

"Akşamüstüne doğru, kış vakti;
Bir hasta odasının penceresinde;
Yalnız bende değil yalnızlık hali;
Deniz de karanlık, gökyüzü de;
Bir acaip, kuşların hali.

Bakma fakirmişim, kimsesizmişim;
-Akşamüstüne doğru, kış vakti -
Benim de sevdalar geçti başımdan.
Şöhretmiş, kadınmış, para hırsıymış;
Zamanla anlıyor insan dünyayı.

Ölürüz diye mi üzülüyoruz?
Ne ettik, ne gördük şu fani dünyada
Kötülükten gayri?

Ölünce kirlerimizden temizlenir,
Ölünce biz de iyi adam oluruz;
Şöhretmiş, kadınmış, para hırsıymış,
Hepsini unuturuz"

Sultanahmet Çamii, popularly known as The "Blue Mosque" stands opposite the wondrous Ayasofiya (Hagia Sophia) in Istanbul's, Sultanahmet district.
The mosque was begun and completed by the Ottoman ruler Sultan Ahmed I, in the early 17th century.
The "Blue Mosque" tag is purportedly due to the interiors, which have over 20,000 (largely) blue handmade tiles. 
The mosque is also home to a madarsa (school) and is surrounded by groves on all sides. Definitely a sight for sore eyes, with one of the most sonorous aza'ans (call to prayer) I have yet heard.

Hagia Sophia "Kebijaksanaan Suci" adalah bekas basilika patriarki Ortodoks Yunani, kemudian menjadi masjid kerajaan, dan sekarang menjadi museum di Istanbul, Turki. Dari tanggal pembangunannya tahun 537 sampai 1453, itu digunakan sebagai katedral Ortodoks Timur dan tempat kedudukan Patriarkat Konstantinopel, kecuali antara 1204 dan 1261, ketika itu diubah menjadi katedral Katolik Roma di bawah Kekaisaran Latin. Bangunan itu menjadi masjid dari 29 Mei 1453 hingga 1931. Saat sekuler berkuasa  dibuka sebagai museum pada 1 Februari 1935.

Blue Mosque was built to rival Hagia Sophia (1000 years apart). It looks bigger from outside but it's definitely smaller inside.

You can enjoy this incredible view from the courtyard of the Blue Mosque. Hagia Sofia is THE masterpiece of Justinian I. Built for the first time in 537 AC, was an Eastern Christian Orthodox cathedral until the fall of Constantinople in 1453 in the hands of the Ottomans. After that, it was a mosque until 1931. In 1935 opened as a museum, the Ayasofya Müzesi. Now if you go to Istanbul, you can see with your own eyes this jewel of the Byzantine architecture.
