Architecture is the art of designing just about anything one can imagine to construct. It can be a building or a structure that one desires. Some designs would really mesmerize viewers with the complexity of patterns similar to those which were used for the construction of Islamic Mosque. The Hagia Sophia in Turkey is one great illustration. But, these was designed and erected by the Byzantines as a tomb. Vaults were built right under the dome. Nonetheless, the prominent domes were apparently copied for the construction of all subsequent Mosques, similar to the Sulemaniye Mosque in the portrait featured, but, without the vaults under the dome.
