View looking south at the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet I Camii).

The central dome is clearly visible in the center of the image and the cascade of domes, semi–domes, and half domes splay down from the central dome.

The architectural technique is based upon principles used in the Hagia Sophia.  The architect of this mosque was Mehmet Aga, a student of the famous Sinan.
