Sultan Ahmed Mosque – Istanbul, Turkey

On my first full day, I had planned to visit the Sultan Ahmed Mosque and Hagia Sophia.

Before entering the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, I had already researched Istanbul and had seen pictures of the Sultan Ahmed Mosque interior. For me, it was not amazing in real life but was impressive. The four very thick pillars hold up the decorative ceiling with the middle dome adorned with the blue tiles that give this mosque its nick name.

As the musty air of stale smelly feet finally got to me, I took my leave of the Blue Mosque.
