Mosque architecture

There's mosques every 5 minute walk. You hear azhan one after another. At first there was too much mosque visit but little differentiation among them. But then I started to realise the subtle detailing in each mosque which differentiates them from one another. For example this one here was built by the master architect Mimar Sinan.

If you look closer the two arched elements resemble the Ayasofya. And I love love the black colour on top of the beige :)
