Türkiye’s first 6-minaret mosque: Blue Mosque
The mosque, called Sultanahmet Camii by Turks, was commissioned by Sultan Ahmet I in 1609-1617 to be built next to the Hagia Sophia mosque. Built by Sedefkar Mehmet Aga, famous architect Mimar Sinan’s student, the mosque has a central dome with a height of 43 meters (141 feet) and 23.5 m (77 ft) in diameter. The Sultanahmet Mosque is called the Blue Mosque by foreign tourists because of its tiles. The Blue Mosque was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 1985.
