Details of the pointed, arched gate of the Blue Mosque or Sultan Ahmed Mosque located in Ahmet Square in Istanbul.
Views of the stepped hemispherical domes and the gold decoration on the main dome. The lens stands for a while on one of the six minarets and continues its wandering inside the mosque where we watch the cinematographer looking around in awe.
Views of the intricate stained glass windows, which are worth noting that they remain the same since its construction. The film closes with shots from the majestic Mosque.
The Blue Mosque was built in just seven years. Work began in 1609 and was handed over in 1616. The architect Sedefkar Mehmed Agha
was a student of Mimar Sinan. It consists of 6 minarets, a fact that caused a misunderstanding that time, since six minarets framed the Holy Mecca. A seventh minaret was added to the Mecca to settle the count. It is built only of marble and stone, it has 410 windows and more than 20,000 ceramic iznik tiles that decorate its interior.
