Our Sea journey was quite windy.When wWe aproaching the Island,  I have felt like aproacching to Lampedusa  (Italy) myself . We  walked around a bit in Bozcadada. I love this place. Cultivation of Wine is quite common in Bozcadada. I think it stems from the structure of the soil of the island.

Last Weekend, What I did?


This photo was taken on the yard of Sehzadebası Mosque on 2th June Sunday. This is my two handsome sons. They look very cute is not it? However,  they don’t agree with each other.

So What About Sehzade Mosque ( Taken from Wikipedia)

The Sehzade Mosque  is an Ottoman imperial mosque located in the district of Fatih, on the third hill of Istanbul, Turkey. It is sometimes referred to as the “Prince’s Mosque” in English.

The Sehzade Complex was commissioned by Ottoman Sultan Süleyman II, also known as Süleyman the Magnificent and Qanuni, the Lawgiver, (reg. 1520-1566 CE / AH 924-976) to commemorate his favorite son Sehzade Mehmed (1520-1543 CE / AH 924-950) upon his early passing in 1543. Twenty-two years old at the time of his death, Sehzade Mehmed was killed while returning to Istanbul after a victorious military campaign in Hungary. Mehmed was the eldest son of Süleyman’s only legal wife – although not his eldest so, Sultans  would not do marriage in the Ottoman Empire. Hurrem  married the Sultan of the first Haseki. Smart women. The first male child has the right to throne of the sultan. This child does not have to be the wife of the sultan. One of the Sultan’s concubines bear a male child, She will win a very important position. Especially İf He was the first male child of Sultan, She had got  an even stronger position. – and before his untimely death he was primed to accept the sultanate following Süleyman’s reign. Süleyman is said to have personally mourned the death of Mehmed for forty days at his temporary tomb in Istanbul, the site upon which famed imperial architect Sinan (1490-1588 CE / AH 895-996) would quickly construct a lavish mausoleum to Mehmed as one part of a larger funerary külliye, or mosque complex, dedicated to the princely heir. The mosque complex was Sinan’s first imperial commission and ultimately one of his most ambitious architectural works, even though it was designed early in his long career.
