Nizamiye Turkish Masjid

In February, a week after my trip to the Buddhist temple, I went to the Nizamiye Turkish Masjid with some other photographers. The mosque was beautiful, but lacked the evading sense of peace I found at the temple.

The entrance to the mosque led into a large courtyard, containing taps where people could wash their feet before entering the actual building.

Another photographer brought a glass sphere, which we shot through to create special effects.

I popped inside the main building, before we all headed to the roof of a restaurant, where we watched the end of the sunset.

On the way, I spotted this:

We stayed on the roof until the restaurant closed at about 8PM.

We then went back inside, before heading home.

I would recommend the mosque to anyone interested in other cultures, or simply interesting and beautiful places.
