Shrine of the companion of last Prophet (P.B.U.H) is indeed the best place to visit, you can reach there by a 35 minutes Ferry ride of golden horn from Eminonu, or the bus from Eminonu.

It looks like another mosque, but this is a special one. Very few tourists were there when I went - it was mostly locals. There are tombs in the area that you can visit as well, but check the hours/days of opening beforehand. There's a stand in front of the mosque selling sahlep which was yummy.

Come here early in the morning and have a breakfast at the top (pierre loti cafe), accessible by cable car and taxi. What a nice thing to do to start your day perfectly.

for a religion tourism, this mosque is one of the basic part of the tour. The story of it is very impressive and mosque is very old. It is very crowded especially at some important time of religion. must visit.
