This mosque was founded by Sultan Ahmet 1. It is renowned for the ?perfect proportion of domes and semi domes as well as its 6 minarets. Lovely to look at day and night. Make sure you have a scarf to wear over your head and a sound knowledge of using a camera inside against lots of glass windows or lights so you don't get blurred images.Open everyday between 8am-21.30pm.

Address: Cami-I Kebir Sok. Eyup-Fatih
