Blue Mosque

The Blue Mosque is one of the most famous religious buildings in the world. It was a truly serene place, hushed and quiet. This mosque is considered the last great mosque of the classical period of Ottoman architecture. Apparently it’s design caused a kerfuffle back in the day as it rivals the splendor of Mecca itself.

It was a grey and rainy day but the Mosque still looked lovely

I liked the high walls that surrounded the place

Here is the entrance

I thought the calligraphy was beautiful

It must be wonderful to worship in such a beautiful place

Women worship in a separate section

It is impossible to picture the scope of the place, but here is another look at the arches.

A mans work is never done. The carpet is vacuumed before and after each of the 5 daily worships.
