The Hippodrome

The Hippodrome

Istanbul, Turkey

The Hippodrome was once a huge stadium seating over 100,000 who gathered for chariot races and political rallies. Today it is a large park, and a road covers the ancient chariot course. This obelisk and one other small one are all that remain of the Hippodrome.
