Istanbul dec 2006 3257.jpg

On the right the flat side of the octagon. To the left you see the top part of another construction added when converting the building to a mosque. During the service I attended there was a team of chanters with fine voices under it. Later I climbed on top, to get closer to the dome and the top of the pillars, to better see the carving. I think it's called müezzin mahfili.
