Kocatepe…The Interior

The Big Mosque is officially known as Kocatepe Mosque. It is not an old mosque and was built in the 70s. The interior is multi level, so I will take a few posts to cover it.

First shot as one enters the main hall:

The big globe is beautiful and is hanging right in the middle of the hall:

The mosque is big and serene and one can just spend some quite time here.

      Thanks. I have been to Ankara twice (I think) but to Istanbul sever times. I just love the mosques in Turkey.

        Have you seen any small village ones? Usually the Imam lives right next door, so if go have a look, I’m sure you’d we welcome.

        Unfortunately, I have not seen inside of the small ones. Next time I am in Turkey, I will make it a point. But then, I have been to many small ones in Pakistan. Just never thought to photograph the local art.
