This beauty came, of course, from Belkis who lives in Istanbul. 🙂
The Blue Mosque (Called Sultanahmet Camii in Turkish) is a historical mosque in Istanbul. The mosque is known as the Blue Mosque for the blue tiles adorning the walls of its interior. The mosque was built between 1609 and 1616 years, during the rule of Ahmed I. Just like many other mosques, it also comprises a tomb of the founder, a madrasa and a hospice. Besides being tourist attraction, it’s also an active mosque, so it’s closed to non worshippers for a half hour or so during the five daily prayers.
