Turkey-03201 - Blue Mosque

PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

The breathtaking interior of the mosque with its chandeliers and blue tiles. The mosque is covered by beautiful 17 century Iznik tiles which give its name to the Blue Mosque.

 

The mosque is lined with more than 20,000 handmade ceramic tiles, made at Iznik (the ancient Nicaea) in more than fifty different tulip designs.
