"Blue Mosque" Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmed Mosque Tip by ania70pl


Built on the orders of Sultan Ahmet I and still bearing his name, the Blue Mosque of Sultanahmet dominates the Hippodrome area which has always been the center of the city. It was projected by Mehmet Aga and took 7 years to build. The Sultan himself joined the builders on several occasions to lend a hand.
