Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet Mosque) Istanbul

The original name of mosque is Sultan Ahmet Mosque and it is still an active mosque. But it is known as Blue Mosque because of tiles and inner decoration. They used 21,000 tiles for inner decoration. The mosque has 260 windows and 6 minarets. It was constructed by Sedefkar Mehmed Aga between 1609-1616 during the Ottoman Sultan Ahmet I. There is a tomb of founder, a madrasah and a hospice near the mosque as well.

Information: It is still an active mosque and open every day for prayers. Pray time changes according sunrise and sunset. That is why I can’t say certain time about visiting. It is closed during prayer hours. Please check prayer times before you go for a visit. It is closed only on Friday till 14.00.
