Eyup Sultan

In one of my previous posts, I have mentioned about Abu Ayyub Al-Ansari, after his tombed was completed, the Golden Horn area became very popular as a resting place. Everybody wanted to be buried near to him.
This photo shows how it is look like inside.
It is also the most popular worship place in Istanbul.

I am with Isabella....I would love to see some closeups here. That would be great. At first I thought I was looking at Topkapi Palace.
