Cheap Hotels near Blue Mosque, Istanbul


Lowdown
Officially called the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Sultanahment Camii), this is popularly known as the 'Blue Mosque' for the vivid blue tiles which thickly cover its interior. Completed in 1616 for the Sultan Ahmed I, this magnificent imperial mosque boasts a huge main dome flanked by six minarets and eight smaller domes. Although still in use as a mosque, it is open to visits (visitors should dress appropriately). The richly decorated interior boasts more than 20,000 tiles, specially made in Iznik, exquisitely painted and intricately arranged. Verses from the Koran adorn the dome, and garlands of flowers decorate the graceful columns. Light slants in through more than 200 windows, and the floor of the mosque is covered in carpets, constantly replaced by the faithful. The chain which hangs in the entrance was put there to ensure that even the sultan – the only person allowed to enter the mosque on horseback – was obliged to lower his head in a sign of humility.

Did you know...?
According to local legend, the architect of the Blue Mosque mistakenly built 6 minarets instead of the 4 ordered by Ahmed I. When it was discovered that the new mosque featured the same number of minarets as the Grand Mosque in Mecca, another minaret was added to the mosque in Mecca to ensure it retained its position as the greatest shrine in the Islamic world.

Practicalities
The Blue Mosque is located in Sultanahmet, the historic heart of Istanbul, and can be easily reached by the no.1 tram and several bus services. The nearest train service is Cankurtaran.
