Two sets of photos from a fast trip to Istanbul

Jump to last reply

Here are two sets of photos I have recently posted on Flickr from a very quick visit to Istanbul in September 2009. The first depicts the Blue Mosque and the Beyazidiye Mosque and the Sultans' Tombs outside the Haghia Sophia:

The second depicts some of the lesser Byzantine monuments around the Sultanhamet district -- the 6th century church of SS. Sergius & Bacchus; the remains of the Bucoleon Palace and the Pharos lighthouse; the Hippodrome; and the Yerebatan Sarai cistern:

I've previously posted two other sets depicting the Haghia Sophia and a lengthy section of the Byzantine land walls:
