Ramp at New Mosque to sultan's quarters

At the south-eastern side of the New Mosque, which I show elsewhere, is a fascinating covered ramp that would always be closed. In 2014 it all of a sudden had its doors wide open, and admission was free. So I went up. Along the sides of the ramp (which was used by the sultan to reach his private quarters when visiting the mosque) modern art, but with ancient elements, was on display. And on top the sultan’s quarters could be visited. The walls are covered with fine Iznik tiles, the woodwork is painted in style, and the whole has been restored extremely carefully and well. It was a joy to visit. When I passed the same spot two weeks later I decided to pay it another visit, and to my surprise the art had been changed. I was told the display is changed frequently, so if you’re in the area for an extended period, here is a great gallery in a wonderful setting.
I first show the sultan’s quarters, without explanation, because I simply don’t know more than what you can see yourself. Then some of the pictures.
