Sultan Ahmed Mosque is, without any doubt, one of the most beautiful buildings in Istanbul, and the mosque was made by Sultan Ahmed himself. If one visits this beautiful building, then they will see that the Sultan’s tomb is on the north of the mosque and faces the Sultanahmet Park. One can’t help but be amazed by the beautiful interior, which was the work of architect Sedefhar Mehmet Ağa. The mosque was built in the early 1600s and has a beautiful interior that consists of a blue dome and walls. More than 20,000 tiles have been used in order to decorate the mosque, which adds to its overall beauty. If one looks closely, then they will be able to see that there is latticework and marble used for its interior decoration. The beauty of the mosque lies in the cascading domes and the six minarets (which are decorated by hand drawings) that can be easily spotted from a distance. Not only this, the mosque has one of the biggest courtyards out of all the mosques that were built during the Ottoman era. In order to admire the beauty of the Blue Mosque, it is highly recommended that tourists enter the building from the Hippodrome.
