Istanbul, Day One: Sultan Tombs

There are several sites around Istanbul that serve as memorial sites for religious leaders. Some are elaborate familial shrines that entomb several generations. Some are more like simple graveyards. Several of the dates we notices were from long, long ago. As an American, it’s odd to see things dated from 1289. It’s a good reminder that our recorded history is still relatively in its infancy.

Below are photos from some of the ones we visited today.
