Blue Mosque Sunset
Blue Mosque Sunset
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, built from 1610-1619 under Sultan Ahmed I, is the only mosque in Turkey that has six minarets. When the number of minarets was revealed, the Sultan was criticized for presumption, since this was, at the time, the same number as at the mosque of the Ka'aba in Mecca. He overcame this problem by paying for a seventh minaret at the Mecca mosque. (Location: Istanbul)
