about blue mosque

The Blue Mosque or Sultan Ahmed Mosque is a historic mosque in Istanbul. There are two stories behind why it is known as the Blue Mosque. One because the interior of the mosque is covered in Blue İznik tiles and second,  because years back, the sailors who use to sail by the mosque on the Marmara Sea use to see the blue colour of the sea reflected in the mosque. The tomb was constructed between 1609 and 1616 and has five main domes, six minarets, and eight secondary domes. There is no  admission fee but one has to follow the rules and dress code while entering the mosque.
