Urfa churches turned into mosques

I had received several messages from an Armenian (now living in America) who informed me about the history of his people and of his family in several places that I showed on my site. I promised him that I would try and find a particular mosque, that formerly was a church, in Şanlıurfa. I did so during a September 2005 stay. In the neighbourhood nearby I found another, and in my mind more spectacular, former church. I here show these two buildings rather extensively, because they are fine specimens and people will want to see them.

However, I urge viewers not to start a kind of discussion that I have seen flare up on several occasions. I only want to show pictures to people who may never be able to visit these places to start with. So hold you horses and just look, right?
