Age brings about experience, and Istanbul, an old city, has various stories to tell its visitors through its world-renowned attractions. Hagia Sophia, its most iconic landmark, has seen various transformations since it was founded. It was originally established as the seat of the Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople before it became an Ottoman mosque. It was then used as a museum before it became used once again as a mosque, its function to date. Just across from it is Sultan Ahmed Mosque, otherwise known as the Blue Mosque for the distinctive color of its tiles. Topkapi Palace is a place worth visiting to learn more about the Ottoman period. Once you’ve had your fill of history, head over to the Grand Bazaar and shop ‘til you drop. Weather in the city can get hot, so book one of the villas with private pool in Istanbul, Turkey, to cool off.

Tip from tour guide

Dilek
Istanbul

Look out for one of the region's rare flowers, tulips. This flower was brought to Anatolia by the Turks from its original homeland in the Pamir Mountains of Central Asia. After being brought from the Ottoman Empire to Dutch culture and art, it has shown its presence in this country both aesthetically and as a commercial product. The Turks tried to beautify the environment they lived in by building special promenades and cultivating flowers such as tulips, roses, and carnations.

One of the reasons why the tulip was so accepted by the Ottomans is that it covers all the letters in the word Allah (ﷲ) with Arabic letters. According to the "ebced" method based on the calculation of the numbers corresponding to the letters, "Allah" and "tulip" correspond to the same number.
