Mosque visit starting times (8:30/9 or one hour after sunrise?)

I see that the Blue Mosque web site says they open for visits at 8:30 in the morning. However, I also read in the RS book that the mosques are open for visit immediately after the sunrise prayer (approximately, one hour after sunrise). The sunrise prayer time prayer time at Blue Mosque seems to be around 5:30 during early June. Will I be able to visit the mosque by say around 7 or 7:30 am or should I expect to be able to visit only after 8:30? My interest in visiting early is to beat the crowds. I am planning to visit the Blue Mosque on June 4 (the first day of Seker Bayrami this year). I am also interested in knowing if other mosques such as Suleiman or Rustom Pasa are open after the sunrise prayer or only after 8:30 or 9. Thanks a lot for your input.
