Boy in the Mosque

If you want to pray, it is a must to wash your hands and feet before you step into the mosque.
Therefore all mosques has this kind of fountains in front of or behind their main building.
Usually comes with the same architectural specifics.
This mosque is in Uskudar, built at the early 1500's....

Gosto particularmente das cores que procuras,
reunes
e publicas.
Como impressão digital do mundo que escolhes para te rodear.

Gosto do que elas dizem de ti.

Boas viagens,
Vira Vento.
