The Selimiye Mosque in Edirne

The Selimiye Mosque in Edirne, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Maybe it was the warm sunny late October weather, or the peace and quiet and lack of tourists, but from the moment I set my eyes on the four towering minarets, I fell in love with this building. The atmosphere reminded us of the Yesil (Green) Mosque in Bursa, but this was even more magnificent. I would say that it is the most beautiful, graceful building I have ever seen in my life.
