Description :

Also known as Sultan Ahmed Mosque, the blue mosque was built in early 17th century ( the construction started in August 1609) and it was commissioned by the Ottoman Sultan Ahmed I.

Located in the famous Sultan Ahmet district, just a few steps from HAGIA SOPHIA and TOPKAPI PALACE, the mosque has a total of six minarets, one main dome, and eight secondary domes.

The Blue Mosque still functions as a site of worship today, however, visitors of all faiths can view its spectacular design, which mixes traditional Islamic architecture with Byzantine elements.

The popular « Blue mosque » surname is due to the more than 20.000 handmade blue Iznik ceramic tiles, that decorate the interior walls of the mosque.

Important tip :

In order to fully appreciate the mosque’s architecture, you should approach it from the side coming from the Hippodrome instead of entering it through the park.
