One of these details is without a doubt is mosques of Turkey which we will cover in this article.
As you may have noticed in any media regarding Turkish tourism and in almost all of our Turkey tour packages, mosques of Turkey are a big part of what you can expect out of a trip here, especially if it is an extended one. For the last ten centuries, all Turkish states who ruled Anatolia left behind extremely well-designed mosques. So well, in fact, they are more than simple mosques of Turkey – they are considered living works of art. Some of the finest examples of these are found in Istanbul, which used to be the capital of Ottoman Empire before Republic of Turkey was founded. The most sophisticated ones are without a doubt Hagia Sophia – which was converted from a Byzantine cathedral into an imperial mosque when Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Empire, and the Little Hagia Sophia. Both of these mosques of Turkey share similar characteristics, as they still exhibit the religious and non-religious artwork of both Christianity and Islam, making them number one in any visitor’s list. Other massive imperial mosques of Turkey include the Blue Mosque which was given that nickname due to its marvelous blue-tiled interior and of course Yeni Cami (The New Mosque) in Eminonu district. All of these can be visited in a day with a lot more highlights of Istanbul, with private and group tours which include Istanbul Turkey tours such as the classic Old City Tour.
