"Blue Mosque at a Distance" Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmed Mosque Tip by mrclay2000

  Sultanahmet as seen from the President Hotel

On a clear day it is possible to see the Blue Mosque from a distance with its distinctive six minarets as well as the rounded hills of Asia across the Sea of Marmara. Muezzins no longer call the faithful to prayer from the serefes of the minarets. With today's technology, loud speakers do the same job, but the effect is quite melodious nonetheless.
