"Tranquility on your doorstep" Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmed Mosque Tip by scout04

You know how it is, hot, noisy, fractious... You go to the Blue Mosque, take off your shoes, put on a headscarf and go inside. Tranquil, peaceful, thoughtful, heavenly. Look at the beautiful tiling and architecture, watch the people, respect the Turks using it and marinate in the atmosphere. Guarantee you'll walk back to your shoes CHILLED.

Address: Sultanamet
Directions: Can't miss it. It's got a garden in front, has 6 minarets and is breathtakingly beautiful.
