This is a quick shot of the central dome of the Yenikapı Transfer Center of Istanbul subway. As I was going up the escalators, I saw the traditional tulip decorated glass of the dome and decided to record it for posterity.

Yenikapı Transfer Center serves the Marmaray (trans-Bosphprus railway) of TCDD and the M1a (to Atatürk Airport), M1b (to Kirazlı, beyond the airport), and M2 (to Hacıosman, southern Sarıyer - toward the northern end of the Bosphorus) lines of Istanbul Metro.

Metronun Kubbesi

Bu, İstanbul Metro Yenikapı Transfer Merkezi'nin merkezi kubbesinin hızlı bir görüntüsü. Yürüyen merdivenlerden yukarı çıkarken, geleneksel lale desenli kubbe camını gördüm ve onu gelecek kuşaklar için kaydetmeye karar verdim.

Yenikapı Transfer Merkezi, TCDD’nin Marmaray (Boğaziçi’ni geçen demiryolu) ve İstanbul Metrosu'nun M1a (Atatürk Havalimanı'na), M1b (havalimanının ötesindeki Kirazlı'ya), ve M2 (Boğaziçi'nin kuzey ucuna doğru Hacıosman, güney Sarıyer'e) hatlarına hizmet vermektedir.

Bonjour, cher Murat,
Je dois reconnaître que nous ne possédons pas un tel métropolitain.
C'est tout simplement inouï de découvrir un tel lieu avec cette coupole.
Très bonne prise de vue.

Hi Murat,
Interesting and beautiful interior, perfect sharpness and light capture, a fine presentation for this dome, tfs.

Hello Murat, when I was in Istanbul, this metro under the sea was not yet open - it happened just a week later. I was very surprised as I haven't seen any note about it. and to go to other side by bus when I wanted to visit Bursa, was such a long way. Nice vie of this ceiling with the tulips. Nice cymmetry and colours.

Hello Murat,
Most of the subway stations I know are dark, ugly caves, but this one looks really beautiful with this large dome in the centre with the wonderful, decorated glass panes. Excellent photo and good light management.

Hello Murat,
Fine capture of this beautifully decorated dome. I like the lighting and the excellent detailing.

Hi Murat,

I passed through this metro station on the way to the Yenikapi ferry terminal for a boat to Yalova & a bus to Bursa in April 2014. Good upward pov and the colorful stained glass patterns are eye catching. Tfs!
