Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet Mosque - Camii) built during the reign of Sultan Ahmet I during 1609-1616. It is the only mosque in Turkey with six minarets. Due to its magnificent hand-dyed blue, green and white Iznik tiles it has been named the "Blue Mosque" by Europeans. The central dome is 43 m in height and is 33.4 m in diameter; it also boasts 260 windows.

It was converted to a museum in 1924. Parts of the palace such as the HOLY RELICS ROOM ; Harem, Baghdad Pavilion, Revan Pavilion, Sofa Pavilion, and the Audience Chamber distinguish themselves with their architectural assets. The museum also has collections from the Imperial Treasury, as well as Chinese porcelain, weapons, calligraphy, etc. The Treasury also houses the Topkapi Dagger, the 86-carat "Spoon Maker's Diamond", and the jewel-encrusted bones of St. John the Baptist.

 

The Eyup Sultan Mosque was the first mosque built by the Ottoman Turks after their conquest of Constantinople in 1453. Completed in 1458, it is located on the European side of Istanbul, near the Golden Horn and outside of the old city walls. Mehmet the Conqueror ordered the construction of the mosque next to the place where Eyup Sultan, the standard bearer of the Islamic prophet Muhammed, was said to have been buried when the Arabs attacked Constantinople in the year 670. Some personal items of the prophet are preserved in Eyup Sultan’s tomb, which is the holiest site in Istanbul and one of the most sacred sites in the Islamic World, attracting masses of pilgrims throughout the year.

 

The Fatih Mosque is an Ottoman imperial mosque located in the Fatih district of Istanbul. It was one of the largest examples of Turkish-Islamic architecture in Istanbul and represented an important stage in the development of classic Turkish architecture. It is named after Fatih Sultan Mehmed, the Ottoman sultan who captured Constantinople in 1453.

 

The Süleymaniye Mosque is an Ottoman imperial mosque located on the 3 rd. Hill of city.It is the largest mosque in the city, and one of the best-known sights of Istanbul.

 

 

The Yeni Cami Mosque is located in the Eminönü neighborhood of Istanbul, right next to the Spice Market and Galata Bridge at the entrance of the GOlden Horn. Yeni means "New" in Turkish because it was a new mosque when it was built. The mosque was ordered by the Queen Mother (Safiye Sultan, mother of Mehmet III) but its construction lasted for 66 years between 1597-1663 because of interruptions such as financial problems, earthquakes, fires, and engineering problems in its foundations for being built just next to the water. During this long period, three different architects were in charge of the construction. Finally the construction was completed during the reign of sultan Mehmet IV.
