Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Istanbul: 254 reviews and 565 photos
I guess you can see in my face in the first photo what I thought of the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, the word Awesome quite describes it...but then I do love architecture. It is interesting to note that aside from the "problem" that the builder Sultan Ahmed met when he "copied" the 6 minnaret design from Mecca, the exterior does not do justice to the interior. The variety of designs seems to make a mess, but somehow they seem to meld and come together. The only outstanding "blot" in this beautiful structure seems to be the addition of modern lights that hang in the center of the prayer area. Okay you NEED light, but at least make it look good....
