There are two columns left, around which the carriages were going around. One is a snake, the other is an obelisk. Remember that the Romans conquered the entire Mediterranean as far as Asia Minor in Turkey, Palestine, including what is now Jordan, part of Syria and North Africa and even for a time some of Persia. From the 5th to the 15th century, Constantinople, which is now Istanbul, was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire or Byzantine Empire, until it fell into the hands of the Ottomans. The Ottomans, Turks of Mongolic origin, and Muslim beliefs, took over a vast empire that included transarabia, Turkey, the Balkans and almost reached Vienna. This empire remained until the First World War, when they were defeated by the allies and their divided empire: Yugoslavia (which is now Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo and Sarajevo), Albania, Turkey, Bulgaria, part of Romania and Hungary, Greece, Palestine/Israel, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, part of Saudi Arabia and the Emirates, part of North Africa and Egypt

Mosques in Turkey are beautiful. Every mosque has to have a place oriented towards Mecca, a dome, at least one minaret or tower - from where it is called to pray 5 times a day, actually 10, because first they call, as if to get ready and then pray -, it can have many, and a crescent moon as a symbol of Islam.
