"Blue Mosque" Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmed Mosque Tip by viajeras2


The Mosque is located next to the ancient hippodrome and across from Hagia sophia. The mosque was built in the first quarter of the 17thT. The Architec was Mehmet Aga, pupils of the great Architec Sinan. They are many mosque in the city but this one is the most famous.

His six minaretes and the lay out of the domes ans semi domes create a unique exterior and the outstanding tiles are well worth seeing. You can hear a sound and u can see the light show is performed every night in various languages, just outside the mosque.
