The Blue Mosque is a legendary monolith in both the Turkish and also Islamic worlds. The magnificent framework was built in the classical Ottoman style, and also includes 6 towering turrets and 260 windows that supply illumination for its substantial inner chamber that is lined with greater than 20,000 Iznik tiles.
The Hagia Sophia, one of the historical architectural wonders that still remains standing today, has an important place in the art world with its architecture, grandness, size and functionality.
The Hagia Sophia, the biggest church constructed by the East Roman Empire in Istanbul, has been constructed three times in the same location. When it was first built, it was named Megale Ekklesia (Big Church); however, after the fifth century, it was referred to as the Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom). The church was the place in which rulers were crowned, and it was also the biggest operational cathedral in the city throughout the Byzantine period.
Among the largest and oldest palaces on the planet, Topkapi is the crown jewel of the Ottoman Empire. Topkapi Palace, the residence of the Ottoman sultans, the state administration and training center. The palace was built by Sultan Mehmed II, the conqueror of Istanbul between 1460 and 1478 and made some additions in time. The Ottoman sultans and the people of the palace lived until the middle of the 19th century.
Founded in 1461, the Grand Bazaar resembles a giant labyrinth thanks to its aesthetic design. The historic shopping area, with nearly 60 streets and over 3600 shops, covers a total area of 30,700 square meters. It can be expressed as the attraction point of Istanbul in both tourism and commercial terms.
