Sultanahmet Camii (Blue Mosque)
Built in 1609-1616 under the ruler Sultan Ahmet I, this mosque is the only one with six minarets. It is called the Blue Mosque due to the 20,000 blue and green toned tiles adorning its ceiling. The hand printed Iznik tiles, 260 stained windows, the impeccable architectural expertise waits to amaze you with its beauty. The Hunkar Mansion, now Carpet and Kilim Museum and Arasta, a bazaar are the two main attractions.
here is very peacuful and nice place to visit. very near to other historical places like topkapi palace and aya sofya(in native language). if you decided to visit the blue mosque where pope prays in his last visit to t�rkiye be sure to bring lots memory sticks with you (you will see lots of scenes to pic)
I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT THE WHOLE TURKEY IS GREAT, NOT JUST ISTANBUL OR BLUE MOSQUE. MAYBE WE SHOULD HEAR MORE ABOUT IT BY A TURKISH MAN, OR BOY/GIRL... I WOULD RECOMEND IT TO ALL, IT IS WORTH YOUR MONEY
The Sultan Ahmet Mosque is one of my favorites. It is so beautiful! The Blue makes it look so peaceful and quiet. It is an amazing place and you dont have to be Muslim to go inside and see! Great History and Art Inside as well as outside. Great people and atmosphere. Very, very peaceful and quiet! A must see!
I consider myself lucky. Because I work near Sultanahmet Mosque and I walk through the park admiring both Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet Mosques every day! A Mosque is considered the house of the God (Allah) so of course it is free and everyone can come in. As a muslim I have visited Vatican also and there were similar limitations on the clothes. Please try to respect the praying people and never cross in fron t of them while they pray, keep silence adn feel the athmosphere. Listening to ezan recited five times a day is also amazing.
