    From Galata Bridge

    Crossing by foot the Galata bridge, the Blue Mosque on the top of the hill of the old city dominates the skyline. From that point you can not see Hagia Sophia, but it is there. I will show you later.

    tiles and  elbows

    In the visit to Blue Mosque you run through an one way promenade. You take-off your shoes, they supply you with plastic bags, you put the shoes into the bag and enter the main building.

    Sultanahmet (The Blue Mosque)

    The only mosque with 6 minarets, an incredible architectoral miracle. The thing that exite me in Sultanahmet is the interior, wýth the flux of lights.

    Mosque Courtyard at Night

    courtyard, Blue Mosque

    If you're lucky, you can steal into the courtyard after the hawkers and shine boys have sought other carrion. The best natural lighting at night coincides with the final call to prayer for the day.

    Blue Mosque

    The mosque takes its name from the blue tilework decorating its interior. It is one of the most famous religious buildings in the world.

    The Blue Mosque is located just across from Hagia Sofia and is another must-see on the list. It was built from 1609 - 1616 under Sultan Ahmet.
