Turkey: Day 2 (Tour of Istanbul: Rustem Pasha Mosque)

On our tour, we stopped to see another mosque called Rustem Pasha Mosque.  Don’t worry, I didn’t get lost or lose my group or friends this time.  I made sure to stay close since I really couldn’t afford any such frustration.

So, there we were, Rustem Pasha Mosque.  I remember the guide told us that it was more blue than the Blue Mosque which it was.  The blue inside of this small mosque was brilliant, just beautiful.  I tried my best to get better shots but those darn tourists were everywhere.  If I turned right or left, they were there.

In any case, the beauty of this mosque is still apparent as seen below.

Our guide was talking but honestly I wasn’t listening.  I just kept looking around, admiring what I saw.  I attempted, again, to get more of the mosque.  My apologies for what’s about to come, lol.  But you’ll see what I mean, hopefully.

We were only there a short time but I am glad that I had the chance to see it.  From the outside you may not guess that it’s as beautiful as it is.
