Blue Mosque: Istanbul, Turkey

The Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul is popularly known as the Blue Mosque for the blue tiles that cover its interior walls. In addition to the beautiful stained-glass windows, this mosque is special because it's one of only two in Turkey that has six minarets. Minarets are tall towers from which the faithful are called to prayer five times a day.
