This mosque is the final resting place of Abu Ayub Ansari, one of the very close companion of the last Prophet (PBUH). It was his home where Prophet stayed when travelled to Madina. So for Muslims specially it carries a lot respect and importance. It also has very old graves of important people.

If you have a chance to be in İstanbul in Ramadan, you should definitely see Eyüp Sultan Mosque and feel the air with the crowd. In order to discover the charms, do not abstain from playing around the mosque towards call to evening prayer.

Eyup is home to the holy site for Muslims. The mausoleum of Hazrat Abu Ayub Ansari, who was Prophet Muhammad's companion is here. Hazrat Ayub was killed here during the first Muslim siege at Constantinople. We came here by bus 99 from the Eminonu Bus Station as we had just missed the ferry and didn't want to wait another hour.... More

Ayup Sultan's tomb and the mosque along with it, is one of the must see places you need to see if you want to complete a tour of old Istanbul. The Bazaar, food market and parks around it are also beautiful.

HAzrat Ayub Ansaari was a Sahaba of the Prophet Mohammed sallalla hu alaihi wassalam. It was in his house that the beloved prophet stayed after entering Madina (Yathrib). The square looks a little like Madina square. It has the same peaceful feeling. Good and cheap restaurants in the area. There are a lot of other Sahaba in the area.
