hi, when I saw this, ı was really upset & still I am. I think this is written by who has really low brain level. This isn't about the religion, this is history. I'm turkish I'm from Antalya and there is so many historical places letf from Byzantium. I have to protect them, because this is history. history belongs hole world, hole humanity. There is a people names on the paint. But there is many different language here.( min-3 )
