Sultanahmet (Blue) mosque

Day 22 – Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque (Pt 2), Istanbul, Turkey

April 2015

This part of the post concentrate on pictures of the interior of the mosque. Although the building of the Blue mosque is big, I must say that the actual prayer hall isn’t that large. There are other mosque we’ve visited, the prayer hall is much larger meaning the number of worshipers it can accommodate is more.

The prayer hall with the low-level lighting. The wooden barrier in the background is the limit non-Muslims and females can enter. Female prayer area is at the back of the barrier.
