The Sultan Ahmet Mosque in Old Town Istanbul is better known by its nickname, the Blue Mosque, given for the thousands of azure tiles that cover its interior. The famed structure, with cascading domes and six minarets, was built beginning in 1609 by the 19-year-old Ottoman Sultan Ahmet I. He died just one year after its completion in 1616.

They have melted my souland frozen it in a mould;  They have named it Istanbul, and put it on earth.  There’s something smoking inside me;air,colour,grace,and climate;  That’s my beloved who came from beyond time and place,  Its flowers are golden stars,its water is sweet;  The moon and the sun have always been Istanbulian.  The sea and the earth have reached their union in her  And the dreams have turned reality in her.  Istanbul is my life;  my motherland in my motherland… Istanbul…
