Blue Mosque at dusk, Istanbul – Turkey


The Sultan Ahmed Mosque (better known as the Blue Mosque), Istanbul – Turkey. If you are wondering why it doesn’t look that blue, it is named for the blue tiles on the interior walls.

  1. We were hoping to visit here again (for a few pics) when we were in Istanbul in October. We took one look at the queue and went off elsewhere. 🙂 At least we can go back another time.

    • I must have just missed you – I was there in October as well. I loved walking past the Blue Mosque every day I was in Istanbul. The day I went inside there was a large queue, but I brave it and it took about 20 minutes to get in. This is what greeted me inside:

      It was crazy busy!
