These spectacular images of the New Mosque (Yeni Cami, in Turkish) in Istanbul, located in the Eminönü neighborhood next to the Spice Bazaar, have been recorded with a drone and show all the beauty of this temple, recently reopened after a restoration which has lasted 7 years. Completed after many vicissitudes in 1665 by Turhan Hatice, mother of Sultan Mehmet IV, it is one of the best examples of Ottoman architecture; inside it is decorated – just like the famous Blue Mosque – with İznik tiles, although in this case not only blue but also white and green.

There are few places in Anatolia that she hasn’t visited… so she is the one who advises the rest of us when we travel.
