To honor the 10th Annual Istanbul Tulip Festival, and the 10th year of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality’s effort of bringing awareness of tulips heritage back to Istanbul, a 1,262 square-meter tulip carpet was created in Sultanahmet Square.

545,000 live tulips created the World’s Largest Tulip Carpet in between the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The carpet design was based on an actual handmade, Turkish carpet – which was on display.
