LOCATION OF THE MOSQUE Eyup Mosque is located in Eyup quarter of Istanbul. Orhan Pamuk, the famous writer, wrote about this quarter as a little and a perfect village located at the end of the Golden Horn, that does not look realistic, but it always seems as semblance. HOW TO GET TO THE MOSQUE If you take taxi drive from... More

This is my first visit to the mosque and the area. The mosque (Camii) is renewed and has a tomb for Abu Ayoub AL-Ansari, friend of prophet Mohamed (PUH). A must visit place. The area is a touristic area with many restaurants and shops.

It is a neighbourhood of Eyyup district on the european side of Istanbul. I understand that it is tradition for newlyweds, as well as newly circumcised boys, to visit the ancient tomb near Eyyup mosque. I have taken some beautiful pictures of these little boys walking with their parents in the courtyard of the mosque.

This mosque is the most holy in Istanbul and it is also most heavenly. Eyup is resplendent in white marble, with fountains to cool the soul, and the chance for restful reflection inside this simple mosque. You reach Eyup by a restful ferry trip up the Halic (the Golden Horn) with hourly departures from Eminou at 10 minutes before the... More

We did not go in the mosque but the marble square was beautiful. I recommend walking down to this area from Pierre Lotti. Yes, it is through a cemetery but it may be the most beautiful cemetery you'll ever see; The Golden Horn is the backdrop. Then just walk along the waterfront to the tram back to Sultanahmet.
