Blue Mosque

A trip to Istanbul isn’t complete without a visit to the iconic Blue Mosque, the most enduring symbol of Turkey. Also known as the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, the Blue Mosque got its name from the blue coloured tiles that line the interior of its majestic dome. Built in the early 17th century, the Blue Mosque is the culmination of two hundred years of Ottoman and Byzantine architecture. The beauty of the Mosque’s lavish exterior, complete with dramatic archways and gargantuan domes, are trumped only by its stunning interior, which is lined with more than 20,000 handmade ceramic tiles.

  • Admire the finely carved and sculpted marble of the Mihrab, the hallmark of the Blue Mosque’s iconic interior.
  • Visit the stunning prayer room, where ornately decorated walls and a massive chandelier welcome visitors from all over the world.
  • Stroll through Sultanahmed Square, the social hub of Istanbul and one of the best places to grab a snack and watch the city’s diverse array of inhabitants.

Acting as the epicentre of Istanbul, the Blue Mosque is easily accessible by public transportation from anywhere in the bustling city. The Blue Mosque can be reached by metro and light rail, and the tramline has a nearby stop at Sultanahmed only two hundred metres away. The area is lively and full of excitement during the day as food hawkers and clothing stands sell their wares. At night the area around the Blue Mosque becomes a twinkling fairy tale, so it’s best to absorb this unique atmosphere on foot.
