About Turkey


Blue Mosque- İstanbul / Turkey

In its interior, blue XVII century Iznik tiles give the Blue Mosque its name. They decorate nearly every corner of this stunning mosque. Large chandeliers hang from the domed ceilings and this and the 260 windows allow natural light to illuminate the interior. The large dome is 23.5 metres (77 feet) in diameter and 43 metres (104 feet) high. On the floor are beautiful carpets which make soft prayer mats for the typical prayer position: kneeling toward Mecca with the worshipper’s forehead to the ground. When you visit the Blue Mosque, remember that it is closed for 1-1.5 hours five times a day during prayer time: the first is early in the morning, second at noon time, third in afternoon, fourth in evening and last, before going to bed
