The majestic mosque stood on the other side of the fence

I was walking along the fence which belonged to the mosque. And I could see the massive structure on the other side of the fence. Two pencil-like minarets were seen from the place where I was. This architecture was Süleymaniye Mosque. The large or small domed roofs were there and I thought they made the mosque like a space ship.

This beautiful mosque was located on the hill. You can see its sophisticated figure from the Golden Horn. It was built between 1550 and 1558 and is one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
