It is allied with all sources that Sultan Ihmet was a religious sultan. XVII. When it came to the beginning of the century, the main hills of Istanbul were kept with mosques and complexes, each bearing the name of a sultan. Sultan Ahmet, however, puts the idea of ??raising a beauty that has never been seen before in the throne city, as a thank you document at the expense of paying great expense money and destroying many famous queen and pasha palaces. The head motif and passion make it the greatest and most beautiful of the glasses that have been made up to that time to prove the hand.

Architect Mehmet Ağa goes to the chief architecture after being included in the department of architecture and the mother of the palace in 1569-1570.

The Ayse Sultan palace in the direction of the kibble of the horse plaza (hippodrome) looked out to the sea, the area was very wide and it was close to the Topkapi palace, and the surroundings were not much built up. This place was seen by the Sultan. Ayse Sultana, who was named, sent thirty thousand golden calibres of gold, and he handed over his possessions to the court immediately with hearted pleasure.

The 9th of the 1018 year recep’s moon. (Today’s calendar is 1609 years, the month is about the beginning of October) The first excavation in the templar, Sultan Ahmet Han himself shot. This excavation is in Topkapı Palace museum today. When the foundation digging started, the Sultan Ahmet Khan had first prayed that he would carry the soil with his skirt and serve the Lord Ahmad’s servant. The completion of the mosque is on June 9, 1617, with the current calendar of the 4th day of the 1026-year-old Friday Del-ahiresi moon. Thus, construction lasted 7 years 5 months 6 days.

The area of ??worship, which is bounded by the walls of the mosque, is a square rectangularly shaped. 53.50×49.47 (2.646 m2) square meters. The inside of the Sultanahmet mosque has a four-leaf clover plan. Four elephant feet are very effective.

The main dome is 43 meters high and 23.5 meters in diameter. This measure shows Mehmet Ağan’s ability as an engineer. The inside of the glass is surrounded by 260 windows that are placed in a very spacious space. Due to the way the windows are placed, the large dome looks like it hangs in the air.

As is known, westerners say “Blue Mosque” in the sense of this blue mosque. This mosque is as bright and spacious as any of its peers. In the three rows of walls, blue, which is the dominant color in the tiles and pencil ornamentations that cover the walls of the glass, which receives light from countless windows opened on the pulleys of the half, center and corner domes, caused this name to be given.

In the Sultanahmet Mosque, Iznik and Kütahya workshops used 21043 pieces of tiles to be purchased as 16th-18th akçeye each as the end of the 16th and 17th centuries. The selviler, lilies, hyacinths, narchizekleri, greeks, grape clusters in the panel which is brought to the white ground with various colors on the white ground is the entity providing the beauty in the Sultanahmet Mosque and being the only source of Turkish tile. Sultanahmet Mosque has more than 50 different tiles.

Sultanahmet Caminin mihrabı, minberi, mahkali mahfeli are separate works of art. The mihrabi, covered with motifs of china filled with flowers, is decorated with columns with cypress motifs made of marble. The pulpit is gilded with geometric inserts and reliefs.

First, in this mosque, a mansion has been added to the mosque for the first time in the mosque, for the first time in the mosque, for the sultan’s prayer, and for the sultan’s rest before and after the prayer. This pavilion, which was adopted by many sultan cami by adopting the later ones, was built on the front edge of the glass or at the bezels that can easily pass through the mosque inside the mosque.

Caminin marble-floored inner courtyard is surrounded by 30 dome-covered porches sited on 26 columns. In the middle of the courtyard is a six-column fountain.

It is the only glass with six minarets. Four of the minarets are two in honor of two. A minaret was added to the Mecca mosque in order to preserve its glory because the six minaret mosque was only the Mecca Mosque before the construction of this mosque.

The Sultanahmet Mosque is a great mabed that is magnificently magnified, gracefully magnificent, faithful and sincere. Shortly after the completion of his humble and devout mosque, the complex is lying on the turban, built on the northeastern side of the outer courtyard of the glass, before the completion of the complex.


These were the first questions and words that spilled from the mouth of the writer and poet Cafer Çelebin who had followed the construction step by step as a close relative of the architect when the mosque was finished and the doors opened to the world.

‘What is this bright light? And what is this beautiful style?

After all, from the four corners of the earth and from all religions of the world who came to visit with believers who run for centuries, from Beyazıt, to those who admired the subtle and highly refined lineage that this building brought to the skyline of Istanbul upon arrival from the sea, The feelings that they have fallen into and fallen into the main space from one of the gates, and this time their admiration turns into astonishment. When people first look at their surroundings, their minds glow through the giant columns, each one of them springing up to the fancy walls and then to the arches and half-domes, which are stacked on top of one another, and to a dome that is not much more imposing on them all, With emotions and fresh, fresh, colorful, colored with a whole new world. This is a camel of Sultanahmet rising in the middle of old Istanbul, or rather on the edge of the historical half island facing the sea. Blue mosque with a place name given by strangers.

Thin taste and a new mosque concept conveyed to the art of Istanbul by his hands. It is a period and a style where Turkish-Islamic architecture has opened its wings to the back. The tale of the tulip commuter which will be a full century after itself, the premonitioner of both the majestic and adorable, the full temple, the creepy but vast garden for the person, the interior warming, the interior warming, the ornamented as an oriental palace; Hele is decorated with a world of patterns in which all the shades of a refined paint are scattered, which we can not decide together, in a rich history, with gold chains hanging with solid emerald lamps, the two worlds meeting this handed glass. The flat walls are covered with tiles and the surfaces rotating and twisting on them are embroidered with a pen. Eventually a brilliant space emerged. It is a strange feeling to visit the man, on the one hand, the imposing pillars, especially the dome on the hill, telling the whole innocence of a mabed with the idea of ??an eternal god, and the immortality of being alone with the power of creating the truth. Everyday life is out, hele is a totally different environment in which modern life and today’s city where the silence of the human being contradicts the creativity, and where the quietness of the traffic joys and the tranquility of the traffic jam. The person is nearly stripped naked and confronted with a creepy loneliness as if he had reached a man of his own. Because everything is so majestic, so great for man, it is so quiet, but it is thought-provoking and inviting beyond its intelligent and cognitive physiology. Your family business is your problem Your enthusiasm is your love and you do not like your money and your property is so far away from you so far that even the crowds that are walking around will be lost in this place, but as soon as the first minutes of filling in the churrtiler are working, It starts to warm up. If you sit at the same place to pray for the prayer and begin to watch the surroundings with a more full and full feeling, this mabe is for the kemaline erysini to delight in all the sweetness given to this martial, this time with all the joy of a human life again beauty measures and value judgments And it starts to flood. How the windows of these windows that surround the real inner horizon are woven with the burning colors and how the Chinese embracing the walls are embellished like a spring garden of this world with embroidered embroideries climbing up to these domes are so painted with enthusiasm in the embellishment And sprinkled. Cloud cloud rosette rosette on the walls until this, the Ottomans love the lilies, the hyacinths can not be found in a temple painted lepidoptera and cloaks. In this vital place, both the worship, the glory, the closeness, the side by side, it is deep inside of the blue master’s master architect.
