Aksaray (White Palace) is a neighborhood in Istanbul. It is so named because it was founded by migrants from Aksaray in central Turkey, deported there by Mehmet II to repopulate the city after the Ottoman Conquest. It also borders the neighborhood of Eminönü around the Pertevniyal Valide Sultan Mosque.

An ineresting night shot! Seems most part of the stores are alreay closed but this one is still open, with the dolls outside. Good idea to include the car passing.

I have not been through Aksaray for over 4 decades. It really is not the most touristic part of town, nor is it the most desirable part of town. Thanks for this ordinary street shot. I find such scenes more interesting than touristic places which have been photographed so frequently that they have lost their freshness. Well done!
