This mosque was built by the Sultan Suleyman whose reign symbolizes the height of Ottoman power.
There will be ample opportunity for taking photographs here.


In the neighborhood, there is a place that is famous for Turkish "boza"
(a slightly acidic sweetened drink made of fermented wheat) called Vefa where we can stop to enjoy some.

Passing through the old alleyways of the city, we come upon a major Roman aqueduct, which connects two hills and passes over a major modern thoroughfare. The 4th century Emperor Valens built it and the aqueduct provided water to the old city off and on over the course of fifteen centuries.
