Wrong again. They are not supported just by pillars



Actually, even the interior borrowed alot, from the Hagia Sophia.... A originally orthodox architecture.
As you can see only a small part actually has pillars supporting i. If you meant archs then that would be more correct. yes many do use archs. Similar to how mosques do. BTW, mosques in certain areas of the east got their influence for Roman and western architecture inwhich later eastern influence was applied...

Again;


Face it Baracuda, Ottoman mosques are a copy of Orthodox architecture. Deny it all you want...

Suleyman Mosque

 

 

 

 

 

a copy is a little exaggeration but They learned from orthodox as always the did.

By the way, Yianis so you think, Ottomans and Turks are different things?

Lol, Im not Greek. The inside of that mosque has eastern influence but look at the archs, they themselves are western Roman in influence. Similar to how Orthodox churchues have them. All your showing me is just more similarity and cultural borrowing....

Anyway yes this is about Orthodox Monasteries

In Bukovina (in Romania) the style (not for all monasteries) is a mix btw gothic an byzantine. You are right about influences of western and eastern but to think that exist (at least in Romania) any kind of ottoman influence is wrong and somehow strange for me, I don't understand how some influence came.

The first one /Rilski manastir - 930/ and the Probrajenski manastir are built many years before even the idea for Ottoman's country to be born!!

Everybody listen only this which understands.
