    Hi! Went there in 2009 but unfortunately I only brought my little pocket camera and it couldn’t capture the details quite as clear as yours did (duh!).
    The Arabic writing/ calligraphy is typical ornaments that can be found in mosques 🙂 pretty, isn’t it? I also love the lights! Never found anything like that in other places. Most of the mosques I’ve visited have a regular chandelier hanging in the middle of the dome

      Yeah, I was at the edge of my zoom to get a lot of these shots. It is an amazing building even to just stand in though.
      We didn’t go into any other mosques during our stay, but did see a lot of that “writing as decoration.” Neat about the lights.

    This is beautiful. Definitely one of the top buildings I still want to see in the world. Thanks for sharing!

      Turkey and Istanbul are really work checking out. Not just this building but all of it.

    I’ve seen quite a few pics of the Blue Mosque from the outside, never such great detail from the inside… great job!

      Thanks. Detail is kind of my thing for a travel point of view.

    Tried to get in here three times on my last visit to Istanbul. Each time something was happening. My timing was so wrong

      Ouch. Have you seen it ever? It is such an amazing work of art.
