This mosque in the Eyup district is named for the bearer of the Prophet's standard-bearer, whose tomb is in a mausoleum outside the mosque and is a venerated place for muslims. It is a smaller mosque but beautiful and the first built by the ottoman turks after the conquest.

This is my favourite area in Istanbul. Any time I return to the city I visit this part. This is a quiet peaceful island in the busy rustling megapolis. When you go there you feel you are in another planet. You will be filled with peace and pleasure. However you will find crowds of people mostly pilgrims who visit this... More

This mosque was commissioned by Sultan Bayezid Veli and erected between the years of 1501 and 1506. The are many rumors as to the identity of the architect, yet no one knows for certain. Facing Bayezid Square, it has been witness to countless political and social events throughout it's history. It is situated near the grand bazaar.

The mosque is beautiful but for Muslims visitors would have a special spiritual significance. Next to the mosque Hzrat Ayyub (Eyup) Ansari, a companion of the Prophet Mohammad is buried. Non Muslims can visit the mosque, which is as beautiful inside as outside. Only everyone has to take off their shoes. The atmospher is pleasantly liberal. My wife Jennifer are... More

Eyup is a nice place to visit almost at the top of the Golden Horn and the Sultan Mosque dominates all. It is a most important place of worship and also of solace for other faiths. It is always thronging with pilgrims
