One of the most important heritages of the Ottoman Empire, one of Istanbul’s favorite temples, is the Blue Mosque.
The unknown story of the glass called Blue Mosque by the Europeans is quite interesting because it is decorated with Iznik tiles. We will share with the frames reflected in Erhan İdiz’s object, and you will witness a turning point in the story of the mosque.
According to the story, the sultan ordered to build the minaret of Sedefkar Mehmet Aga, the architect of the mosque which he wanted to build. However, Mehmet Aga, who knows that the minaret will overcome the state budget, will build this minaret with 6 minarets by making “six” from the word “gold” and hearing it wrongly.
On the one side of the legend, the magnificent mosque of all fascinates, as well as the reaction of admiration. Because the only temple that had six minarets at that time was the Kaaba, and it was said that the sacred space was disrespectful.
The Sultan, calling on the situation before the architect, asks how many minarets the mosque is.
Having received the answer “Six”, the Sultan notices how many minarets of the Kaaba are in question, and the architect is aware of the situation and the way to the Kaaba. Two years later, after the Sultan, the architect says that the Kaaba now has seven minarets.
