Every one knows that there are minarets and towers rising up, in fairy-like grace, from amid gardens and cypress groves- but “he who would see it aright” should have his first view in all the bright unreality of a sunny summer morning.

Soon after dawn, in the tender duskiness of the early hours, when the light steals down shyly from the veiled east, and before the business and noise of a great city begin, Constantinople is like the sleeping beauty in the wood. A great hush is over everything, broken only when the sun comes up in a blaze of light, flooding sea, earth, and city with a “glory” of life and colour.Then from each minaret is heard the voice of the muezzins, as they summon the faithful to prayers. The fairy-like caïques skim in every direction across the waters- and the beautifully-named but dirty and somewhat ugly Golden Horn is all astir with moving vessels.
