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

This is a mosque where one of the "Sahaba) prophet Mohammed was buried , Abu Eyub El-Ansari. If you visit the Pierre Loti by cable car you also visit the mosque. There are some shops in the area with good price.
