Ortakoy Mosque, Istanbul, Turkey | Photo Art Print
Shot in Istanbul, Turkey at the golden hour.
Making up one of the most distinctive scenes of Istanbul with the Bosphorus Bridge, Ortakoy Mosque (Mecidiye Mosque) stands out with its exquisite decorations.
It is a beautifully designed mosque on the shore of the Bosphorus that magically rises from the water. Built in between 1853- 1855, this baroque style mosque represents the finest example of late Ottoman period architecture. Ortakoy Mosque, identified with the district, is usually noted to be of the baroque style, but because the Ottoman adaptation of European architectural trends shows great variety and originality. It would be more appropriate to categorize these kinds of buildings as products of Ottoman eclecticism.
