Eyup is such a great place to visit, there where you can have an amazing view up from the top of the hill and then through the large tomb which you cross till you reach down where the sultan's mosque is located A wonder place to visit and that cannot be missed as I mentioned before. Thank for your time... More

Not only does Hazrat Ayub Ansari have a significant status in Islam but the Sultans of Turkey have built a beautiful mosque too where he is buried It's hard to reach and it's pronounced as Eyup rather than Ayub To reach there I took bus 99 near galata bridge near spice bazar ( which Is 10 minutes Walk from Grand...

This is not a typical destination for non-Turkish tourists, but that made it all the more intriguing. I've been twice, the first time we hired a small boat and cruised up the Golden Horn to the mosque. As we walked along the grounds it seemed deserted on that day, but once we reached the mosque we were the only obvious... More

The area was well preserved. The people are friendly we enjoyed visiting the Camii. It is a short cab ride from sultanahmed.

it's really far from the main touristic attractions but it is worth visiting this mosque and its complex.I even saw a 8years old child whitedressed as if he were a prince: it was his day of circumcision. If you have enough time visit it.

One of my favorite place in Istanbul... to run from tourist places, to have peaceful moments with your own soul... praying inside the mosque... asking the Sultan on behalf of us to Allah.. sharing with others these moments... listen to Quran & Athan as well... I think it's a spiritual place for anyone muslim or non muslim...

Quite a way out and on the other side of the river/inlet (The Golden Horn) from the big mosque attractions in Sutanahmet but we were with an organised 3-day tour and all the hard work was done for us; on your own this visit would be quite difficult but – the taxis are cheap. We arrived just after a thunderstorm... More

This place is always busy with people coming alone and with families. Asking the sultan to pray on behalf of them to God. A place for men to perform their ablution is inside the main entrance. The mosque is huge but is absolutely packed on Fridays. Amazing spiritual place and very holy. Truly a place where when you pray, the... More
