Owner description: Built between 1609-1616, this impressive mosque has six minarets. Why is it called "Blue Mosque?" There are two stories: the first, more common one is that the interior is covered in Blue İznik tiles. The second is: Many years ago, ancient sailors who sailed by the mosque on the Marmara Sea saw the blue colors of the sea reflected in the mosque.

This building is opposite of Hagia. As it is a mosque, respective casual clothing is required. No entry fee. North side of entrance has various columns, east has Sultan Tomb and main entrance.

We visited this place during the weekend. Unfortunately, it was being renovated, so you could not enter the mosque.
We could only see the outside area.
This was a free activity. I would love to come back and appreciate the beauty of the mosque.
