Sultan Ahmed Mosque (in Turkish Sultanahmet Camii) is wordly known as Blue Mosque because of the thousands of blue tiles that cover the dome inside. It is settled in the old part of Istanbul. It was built by Sultan Ahmed I in the XVII century. The mosque is impressive: it is surrounded by six minarets, the outside court is the biggest among the Ottoman mosques, the light strems in through more than 260 windows. This monument competes with Hagia Sophia, the old Christian church, for the beauty of its architecture. If you visit it you can't lose the close hippodrome, the sporting and social center of Constantinople.
