View looking west at the largest of three pools that contain carp which are sacred to the Moslems. On the right (north) side of the image is the facade of an 18th-century mosque called the Rizvaniye Camii. At the far (west) end of the pool are the buildings associated with a 17th-century mosque called the Abdurrahman Camii. The distinctive square minaret, left of center, is from an older 12th-century mosque.
