The Blue Mosque or Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Turkish Sultanahmed Camii) in Istanbul, is the work of Sedefkar Mehmet Aga, a pupil of the architect Sinan. It is situated opposite the Hagia Sophia, both separated by a beautiful garden area and is the only one in Istanbul which has 6 minarets. Its magnificent outdoor overshadows its sumptuous interior, where a veritable symphony of beautiful blue Iznik tiles, give this area a very special atmosphere. After the Peace of Zsitvatorok and the negative result of the wars against the Safavid Empire, Sultan Ahmed I ordered a mosque in Istanbul to placate Allah was the first imperial mosque was built after over forty years. While his predecessors had built mosques with the spoils of war, Sultan Ahmed I had to withdraw funds from the treasury, because they had not won a major battle. This provoked the anger of the ulema.
