Prayer/Experience Istanbul

Throughout Istanbul, prayers are made over loudspeaker for several minutes at different times during the day. Each mosque broadcasts prayers.

Initially, it is very surprising to be walking around the city and suddenly hear prayers, but eventually the experience blends in with the routine of the city. Taking a pause during a prayer is quite nice, and the chanting can be very beautiful.
