You have to go here just to see the Shrine of Abu Ayyub Al Ansari. It was totally amazing when we went. We went on Eid and there were 1000s of Turks there and in the bazaars surrounding it. If you are in Istanbul, you have to visit this place, even if you are non muslim. The mosque was full... More

Is one of the areas that we liked most. We arrive by ferry and the atmosphere was spectacular. Full of small children dressed as sultans with families. An area full of life away from the tourist crowds .

From the perspective of being a muslim, this was a moving experience to visit the mosque and the mausoleum of this great companion of the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). This place is located just within walking distance of the "Telephonic" (cable care the goes from the Eyup Sultan area up to Pierreluti). One can offer fatihah at the resting place. There... More
