This is a lovely Mosque and the blue tiling makes it quite unique. You can get there easily by tram. There is no charge for entry and on leaving you can donate Lira towards the upkeep if you wish. I liked that they had the necessary cover ups (head scarf and wrap to cover legs) for you to borrow as it was not something I had with me. When in the queue you will get a few "tour guides" who offer to get you in quicker - we stayed put and the queue moved quickly.On a Friday there are prayers from about 12 midday to 2pm and you cant enter during this time. We took the opportunity to have a bite to eat. A local police man recommended the community restaurant opposite the Blue Mosque where we had a lovely donor pita bread for 6TL and a complimentary Apple tea after the meal. The service was fantastic.

Subtly stunning. Don't worry about having the right clothing, they will provide women with shawls and men with skirts to cover all appropriate areas.

First saw it at dusk and it is an amazing sight, made more beautiful due to the lights to celebrate Ramadan. Beautiful tiles inside, hence the name.
Would be better with a guide if this is your first visit to a mosque!

An excellent example of a Classic Turkish mosque. Beautiful from the outside and inside, from close and far. A good place to go for quiet.

This is a truly beautiful mosque. We went mid morning but the queue was very long, so we decided to come back after lunch and there was no queue at all (2.30).
