Turkey - Blue Mosque














Hijab // Dress // Jeans

Here we visited the Blue Mosque which was built between 1609 and 1616. It is so surreal to see this Mosque and to think about how advanced architecture was so long ago that they were able to build such a place. sA it was so beautiful inside and out, I can't even describe it! I've seen many large scale Mosques, notably the Sheikh Zyed Mosque in Abu Dhabi built only in 2007, but the Blue Mosque has a different feel due to it's dated history. It's also so surreal to see the Hagia Sophia right across the courtyard, but more pictures of that to follow on another post!

Turkey Part 1

 








My top is from Forever and I just got it a month ago at forever 21, but I can't find it online! I linked a similar one thought which I think is also very cute!

These pictures are from the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. It was one of my favorite sites to see in Istanbul because the museum included many antique items, but most notably articles that belonged to the beloved prophet PBUH. It was so surreal to see all the items used by so many notable figures in Islam. I definitely recommend visiting this museum to anyone who visits Turkey!!
