Blue Mosque – Sultanahmet Mosque


Also known as Sultan Ahmed Mosque, located in Sultan Ahmed Square in the heart of Istanbul, adjacent to the Hagia Sophia. Designed and built by the proud student of the famous Islamic world, Sinan, in the early 17th century, it is one of the most representative buildings in Turkey. The Blue Mosque did not use any nails during the construction process, but this magnificent building has experienced countless earthquakes in the past 400 years and remains safe and sound.

There are more than 20,000 blue Yizini tiles in the mosque. The light from the small window into the mosque is reflected by these tiles, which makes the mosque emit a gentle and peaceful blue light. Hundreds of Turkish rugs and numerous calligraphy works in the mosque are another highlight of the mosque. The six spires around the mosque are unique and amazed countless visitors.
