My mum had been to Istanbul 6 months before I went, so she told us to not miss the opportunity to visit this beautiful Mosque. We took a taxi from our hotel in Sultanahmet.

There is very little mentioned about this mosque in the West because the mosque is not as grand as other mosques in the city but this mosque is a gem.
