Yesil mosque stone carving


An example of the beautiful and intricate carving of the Yesil Mosque. Much of the mosque is decorated like this, however parts are not finished due to a war whilst the mosque was still being built.

Is it stone or is it marble? I also wonder at the patience of the men who carve these wonders.

It is marble. You're right about patience... and to think it has lasted so long as well. The mosque was finished in 1424.
