Travel Photo: Hagia Sofia series The Empress and her court


The Empress and her court, originally uploaded by Fun Lilliy.

The thron of The Empress was placed on the left side of this photo where The Loge of The Empress was.
Quoted from Wikipedia:

"From there the empress and the court-ladies would watch the proceedings down
below. A round, green stone marks the spot where the throne of the empress
stood."


Turkish Phrase of the day:
Daha yavas konusur musunuz lutfen? / daha yavash konushur moosunooz lootfen? = Can you speak more slowly please?

Yes I really enjoyed Istanbul. It has become one of my most favorite cities in the world.The Hagia Sofia is one of the most amazing buildings I have seen every corner represents a certain era. So full of history and so beautiful at the same time.
