The mosque is beautiful but for Muslims visitors would have a special spiritual significance. Next to the mosque Hzrat Ayyub (Eyup) Ansari, a companion of the Prophet Mohammad is buried. Non Muslims can visit the mosque, which is as beautiful inside as outside. Only everyone has to take off their shoes. The atmospher is pleasantly liberal. My wife Jennifer are... More

Eyup is a nice place to visit almost at the top of the Golden Horn and the Sultan Mosque dominates all. It is a most important place of worship and also of solace for other faiths. It is always thronging with pilgrims

the first thing here is a sense of calm, peace and spirituality. The mouselem of Ayup Ansari is visited by people of all religions and faiths and the surrounding beautiful graves with very interesting gravestones dating back centuries makes it a place to must visit

I enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere in this mosque between prayer times. Men and women are not segregated and children scamper quietly. Take some time to sit quietly and reflect. The tomb is well-attended, and the shady courtyard with drinking fountain is a nice spot to sit and rest your tired feet.

I first visited Eyup SUltan Mosque in September 2013. They were filming a historic drama at the time so did not stay for long before going on to Pierre Loti Cafe. There was an elderly gentleman sitting outside the mosque with a small box of assorted perfume oils and he was perfuming the right hand of every person entering the... More

We took the ferry from Eminönü. It was a nice trip along the Golden Horn. Eyup Sultan Mosque is right outside the walls of historic Constantinopol. The mausoleum of Hazrat Abu Ayub Ansari (Prophet Muhammad's companion) makes this mosque a site of pilgrimage for Muslims. If you want to experience a true Muslim Istanbul, then this is the place to... More
