world pictures Turkey (Istanbul): Secular Monuments

Back up on the circuit of the hippodrome, there's an obelisk built in the 15th century, B.C., by Thutmose III. Almost two thousand years later, it was lugged here from Heliopolis, near Cairo, by the emperor Theodosius. Hence its name, the Obelisk of Theodosius. The minarets belong to the Blue Mosque.
