Sultan Ahmed Mosque In Istanbul

Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul

The blue mosque was not blue

Shot in Istanbul, Turkey.

Because I heard this magnificent mosque with six minarets was also known as the Blue Mosque, I couldn't distinguish it at first glance. Its appearance was not blue. The name derived from its interior color. Its interior was decorated with the enormous number of blue tiles made in Iznik.

The mosque was so huge that seven years had passed till it had been finished in 1616. And it is listed on UNESCO World Heritage Sites as one of the architectures in 'Historic Areas of Istanbul'.
