Actually, I think it's Aya Sofia. Close enough. And you're right. It's across the street from the Blue Mosque.

You got it. Magnificent place. For a thousand years it was the largest structure in Europe. Across the square from the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Blue Mosque), the Basilica Cisterni, around the corner from Topkapi Palace, and a click away from the Grand Bazaar. Istanbul is fabulous.

It is Hagia Sophia. But it sounds like Aya in Turkish.

Well, obiwan9962, I don't want you to think that your picture is being ignored--I was interested enough to actually try and draw it and ask one of my good Japanese friends and she told me what she thought it was but wasn't sure. But I don't want to guess right now because if she was right my DH is out of town and I will hold up this thread trying to post a picture. Can I private message you and tell you what she said?
