The biggest mosque of Istanbul. Has six minarets, four, as usual, on the sides, and two slightly less high — on the outer corners. It is considered an outstanding example of Islamic and world architecture. The mosque is located on the shores of the Marmara sea in the historical centre of Istanbul in Sultanahmet across from the Museum of Aya Sofia. The mosque is one of the symbols of the city.
Address: Atmeydanı Cad. Sultanahmet, İstanbul
