Abstract:
The Ottomans had inherited the decorative elements preceding them, and did not contend with such extent, but had developed and created at each of the Floral, geometric and writing adornments. The key features distinguishing Ottoman architecture in Rhodes (1523-1912AD) are the ornamental richness and the attention paid to the decorative side had been increasingly growing. Through what had reached us of the Ottoman period constructions, it would be apparent to us the tendency to decoration and that such decorative material had largely varied. Such ornaments had been represented in a number of types: * Floral ornaments * Geometrical ornaments.
