If you've been to Tampa, you've seen the minarets on top of the University of Tampa's Plant Hall, but you've probably never stood on one and looked around. As the image pans to the left, you’ll be looking at a part of the campus that has seen substantial construction of mid-rise dorms since this photo was taken. As you continue panning left, downtown comes into view, including the Tampa Art Museum, main library and the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center along the Hillsborough River.
The minarets have been variously described as being of Moorish, Turkish or Middle Eastern style. They sit atop a building that originally opened as the Tampa Bay Hotel in 1891. It became the centerpiece of the University of Tampa campus in 1933.
