It was build in Byzantine style by a Turkish architect (Turkish school differs from Greek school, btw). So it's not really Byzantine architecture.

My favorite kind of architecture.

I love the munghal designs from India and Pakistan and the tile work from Iran.

Keep them coming!

The Chinese mosque is indeed more Tibetan in style than Islamic, except for arabic calligraphic inscriptions and there being no statues..
The Blue mosque is I would say an evoltion of Byzantine architecture. HagiaSophia represents a true example of byzantine architecture. However, note that the inclusion of Minarets was a latter modification. also, most mosques in Turkey have compounded domes and are heavily adorned with Islamic architectural elements, such as mini domes, arches, Makaranas, and calligraphy.

Shah faisal Mosque in Pakistan is an example of contemporary Islamic architecture.

Islamic Architecture is not about which region its from! It is based on any architecture but with a large blend of Islamic triditions. like example, the hagea sopeia is origanally Byzantine but after the ottomans claimed Istanbul, It was renovated into a different architechure. I'm preety sure the Hagea Sopeia is not the same ever since the ottomans came!
