Sultan Ahmet is a great engineering blessing to his capital was this delightful mosque, generally known as the Blue Mosque today. Worked in the vicinity of 1609 and 1616, the mosque caused a furore all through the Muslim world when it was done as it had six minarets an indistinguishable number from the Great Mosque of Mecca.An awesome touring delight of a trek to Istanbul is meandering in the midst of the greenery enclosures sandwiched between the Blue Mosque and the Aya Sofya to experience their dueling domes in twin glory. Come at dusk as the call to prayer echoes out from the Blue Mosque's minaret for extra ambience.
Specifically behind the Blue Mosque is the Arasta Bazaar; an incredible place for a shopping stop as the craftsmanship shops here offer brilliant keepsakes. Even if you're not interested in a browse, head here to see the Great Palace Mosaic Museum, which is tucked between the Arasta Bazaar and the mosque.
