Right across the way from the Hagia Sophia is the Sultanahmet Camii, or the Blue Mosque. We made sure to visit here during our trip to Istanbul and it is absolutely breathtaking! The scale of the mosque is overwhelming, you feel so tiny under the immense domes.

The name of the mosque comes from its tiles, which are Iznik blue. The patterns and decoration are incredible!

We were there while the sun was setting, the sunlight making the interior all the more dramatic. It’s such a beautiful place!
