Photographer's Note

Haseki Hürrem Sultan Hamami (Turkish Bath)

Best atmosphere for a carpet store. You see the entrance of a once private lodge of the hamam, and part of a carpet is seen through the entrance. The lights on the wall are reflected from the little windows on the ceiling.

from Wikipedia:

The Haseki Hürrem Sultan Hamamı (translatable as: "Bath of Roxelana") is a turkish hamam that was commissioned by Sultan Suleiman I's consort Roxelana and constructed by Sinan during the 16th century in Istanbul. It was constructed for the religious community of the nearby Hagia Sophia. Today it houses a state-owned carpet store, the interior has largely not changed.
