Visiting the Blue Mosque is an incredible experience. Before beginning the free tour, women are fitted with a robe plus a scarf for their head. Everyone removes their shoes. Then you walk along a white marble corridor flanked with ornate aluminum lattice. As you enter the carpeted main prayer hall, you will gasp. It has a capacity for 24,000 worshipers. The tinted windows bathe the room with a tranquil blue hue. There are multiple pointed arches, typical of Islamic architecture. The upper walls are covered with red panels made from local Malaysian wood. The chandelier in the center of the rotunda is extraordinary.
