Istanbul june 2008 2866.jpg

The decoration of this gate inside the sultan’s quarters of the Fatih Camii dates from 1771, and is characteristic of the late-18th century ‘Turkish Baroque’ style, that was popular at the Ottoman court at the time.
The calligraphic inscription dates from the same period.
