About a week and a half ago, I launched a Heritage Photo Contest in my blog. It was launched as part of a post describing my experience using the GPSmyCity self-guided city walk app. GPSmyCity apps will be given to ten (10) participants who submit interesting heritage photos from their travels [CONTEST IS CLOSED]
Well, it’s time to reveal those 10 interesting heritage photos, and the individuals behind the lens who took the photos 🙂
10. The Blue Mosque, Istanbul, Turkey

Anupriya writes, “The library was incorporated in 1895 and it stands regally amongst the houses. It’s a testimony to the quest of knowledge!”
8. Menara Kudus (Kudus Tower Mosque), Central Java, Indonesia

Bart writes, “The tower was built in 16th century as the minaret of the mosque by Sunan Kudus who spread Islam in Java. Though it is part of the mosque, the minaret architecture itself is influenced by Buddhist-Hindu style”
7. Santh Estifun Church (Church of North India), Assam, India
