Beyazit Square, Istanbul


Original Watercolour 15" x 11"

Beyazıt Square (officially named Hürriyet Meydanı, "Freedom Square," but no one uses that name except some cartographers) is the spacious plaza in front of Istanbul University's main gate, and next to the Grand Bazaar and the Old Book Bazaar. The area just east of the square is known as Çarşıkapı (CHAHR-shuh-kah-puh, "Door to the Market") because of a main entrance to the Grand Bazaar.It's a busy transport hub with bus routes converging and trams taking you down to Sultanahmet and the Galata Bridge.
