Happy New Year 2019 - Istanbul, Turkey

Visited Camlica Hill to observe New Year 2019 celebrations in Istanbul Turkey.

Camlica hill is located at Asian part of Istanbul city which is the highest hill among all the hills in Istanbul around 260 meters above sea level. its purely a tourist spot. At this height, you can observe entire Istanbul city, 360 degrees as far as your eyes can see.

Name of this place is associated with kind of tree, called Pine tree.

On top of every thing, in future, this hill may gain more popularity due to Camlica Mosque, under construction these day, apparently complete but not open for public yet.

It is said that it would be the largest Mosque of entire Turkey, largest than the mosques build by ottomans.

I have taken a small video shot of fireworks in neighboring area of Camlica which is
