Visit Hippodrome and Obelisks : The Hippodrome (At Meydani) was an of course a horse-racing track, what's in the name. But during the Byzantine Empire, the hippodrome was not only used for chariot races. Court ceremonies, coronations, and parades also took place at the hippodrome, making it the sporting and social center of Byzantine life for over 1000 years. The reason why some refer to it as the Hippodrome of Constantinople.

Besides still being used as a mosque, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque has also become a popular attraction in Istanbul.
