Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmet Mosque

Location: Home / Information / Highlights / Istanbul / The Blue Mosque (The Sultan Ahmet Mosque) 













































Across from Hagia Sophia stands the supremely elegant Imperial Sultanahmet Mosque with six minarets. Built between 1609 and 1616 by the architect Mehmet, the building is more familiarly known as the Blue Mosque because of its magnificent interior paneling of blue and white Iznik tiles. During the summer months an evening light and sound show both entertain and inform visitors.
