The Blue Mosque - Istanbul

The majestic Blue Mosque was built in the first half of the 17th century. The marble walls are decorated with traditional Islamic blue tiles with floral patterns. Instead of four minarets, the temple is surrounded by six towers with balconies. Inside the prayer hall, in the under-dome spaces, sayings from the Koran are inscribed in a circle. The main dome rests on four massive columns with a diameter of 5 m, completely covered with plant patterns. The interior, as well as the exterior, is dominated by blue and light blue tones. Daylight enters the hall through 260 windows decorated with stained glass. The courtyard is surrounded on both sides by arcades. Next to the mosque stands the mausoleum of Sultan Ahmed I, by whose decree the shrine was built. Sultan Ahmet, Atmeydanı Cd. No:7 #i̇stanbultrip
