The Blue Mosque is still a place of worship for Muslims, who pray here five times a day, and is over 400 years old. Located in the Sultanahmet region of Istanbul, in the heart of the city’s ancient centre, the Blue Mosque is near many of Istanbul’s best hotels as well as Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar.
