Owner description: Famed architect Sinan built this majestic structure for one of the greatest rulers of the Ottoman Empire. Although this mosque is less ornate, there are many similarities between it and the Hagia Sophia since the same architect was responsible for both.

Loved this mosque. A bit of a queue to get in but definitely worth visiting. Make sure you are adequately covered to visit the mosque. They have scarves available for tourists.

The Blue Mosque is unreal... make sure to wear appropriate clothing, as this is a functioning mosque. They do have some things that you can put on in order to enter if you don't have the right clothing. It's very close to Aya Sophia as well so I would do both in the same day.

There was very big and magnificent mosque. Many Islam prayed inside, and many tourist took a break in there. I was overwhelmed to see magnificent mosque. I went in mosque and talked with my friends comfortably about mosque. There was a good attraction to visit.

The view is beautiful as well as the size of this mosque. It is in the tourist area so you won't miss it. It's a manifestation of the Ottoman style in architecture
