What people are saying:

The exterior of the mosque is not as big as the Sofia church, but the interior is really breathtaking, with a blue tone and various delicate patterns. There are also huge marble columns. It is well worth a look and detailed.

Introduction

Situated on the bank of the Bosphorus Strait is one of Istanbul's landmarks, Sultan Ahmed Mosque. It features a magnificent and eye-catching, enormous round dome. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque, was built under the rule of Sultan Ahmed during the Ottoman Empire. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque derives its name from the more than 20,000 blue ceramic tiles used to decorate its interior. These exquisite blue ceramic tiles are one of the mosque's highlights. The tiles are engraved with rich patterns and Arabic inscriptions, which are the perfect embodiment of the unique features of Islamic art.
