Queen Valley AZ, The Blue Mosque in Istanbul
We arrived at the Blue Mosque the afternoon of April. Very impressive! As you can see it has six minarets. Only one mosque, the Grand Mosque in Mecca, has more. Very beautiful inside, over 20,000 tiles line the walls, over 200 stained glass windows!
Original post office, still operating and now a museum
Thats one fancy kiosk!
this is where the faithful wash up before entering the mosque
all must remove shoes to enter as you do in all Turkish homes
