The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also known as the Blue Mosque, was completed in 1616 as an imperial mosque on the site of the palace of the Byzantine emperors. It was intended to be the first mosque of Sultan Ahmed I's empire and is depicted in Turkey's 500-lira banknotes from 1953 to 1976. The inside of the mosque features over 20,000 handmade ceramic tiles.
