There isn't much I can say about the Blue Mosque.  It is simply exquisite.  I've posted all the pictures I took in the Mosque so I'll let the pictures do the talking.  For more information on the mosque click here

The bus dropped us off here at the Hippodrome.  This is where they held chariot races in the 4th century.  This obelisk is from the Temple of Karnak and was built 1500 years before Christ.
Ceiling of the hallway entrance to the mosque.  We had to remove our shoes before entering the Mosque.

Keep in mind that this was built in the 1600's.  These are electric lights.  Think of how it looked in candle light.
