Sultanahmet Mosque

Blue Mosque, Sultanahmet Camii, Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Blue Mosque
Turkey, Istanbul
The first largest and one of the most beautiful mosques in Istanbul. The mosque has six minarets: four, as usual, on the sides, and two slightly less high - on the outer corners. It is considered one of the greatest masterpieces of Islamic and world architecture. The mosque is located on the shores of the Sea of ​​Marmara in the historical center of Istanbul in the Sultanahmet district opposite the Ayasofya Mosque. The mosque is one of the symbols of the city.
The mosque was built as part of a huge architectural complex, which included: a madrasah, a hospital, charitable institutions, kitchens, a caravanserai. In the 19th century, the hospital and the caravanserai were destroyed.

I liked it, worth a visit, especially if you got to Istanbul. For a visit, it is better to choose the morning, there is less line at the entrance and there are fewer people inside. And closer to dinner, tourists from cruise ships run in and it becomes quite sad. At the entrance, women are dressed in Muslim clothes, and men in shorts are given a sheet to wrap around their hips. It is better to take a bag with you to carry shoes, entrance and exit from different sides, so that you will have to carry shoes with you throughout your visit to the mosque.
