This is the New Mosque of Istanbul. Having been completed in 1665 it’s not that new anymore, but why quibble over details. The mosque is on the Golden Horn near the Galata Bridge. I love to come down here in and see all the “new” buildings glow in the afternoon sun.
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque (better known as the Blue Mosque). If you are wondering why it doesn’t look that blue, it is named for the blue tiles on the interior walls.
