Sultanahmet Mosque, Istanbul

I was so surprised when I received some more postcards and even fridge magnets from Cuneyt from Turkey.  This first postcard shows the Sultanahmet Mosque in Istanbul.  It was built between 1609 and 1616. The mosque is popularly known as the Blue Mosque for the blue tiles adorning the walls of its interior.  It is still used today and is also a very popular tourist attraction.
