The Ortakoy Mosque: A pure marvel of neo-baroque architecture from 1855, created by the Armenian architects Garabet Amira Balyan and his son Nikogos Balyan for Sultan Abdulmecit I.
The sun reflecting on the blue of the Bosphorus makes the interior of the mosque poetically bright thanks to the presence of many picture windows.
