Samsun street scene

Here is an illustration of how steeply the hills run down towards the sea. The mosque is on street level with a main artery, the shopping street runs down fast.

I was informed this mosque is one of the oldest mosques in Turkey and goes back to as early as 14th century, built in 1360 A.D.

I wonder if inside there is any sign of this, I have visited several extremely old mosques that obviously had been done over completely during the last five or ten years.

Hi Dick,
This is me again. This time I am going to make an addition about this picture. This mosque is one of the oldest mosques in Turkey and goes back to as early as 14th century, built in 1360 A.D.
Bye,
