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.
