A view of Sultan Ahmet Mosque (The Blue Mosque) from the surrounding gardens at dusk ❤️ The reason for naming Sultan Ahmet Mosque "The Blue Mosque" goes back to the prevalent blue color of the mosque due to the extensive use of blue tiles to decorate the walls of the mosque's inner yards. The number of decorative tiles is estimated at 21,043 handmade tiles, in more than 50 different designs.
