The Eyup Mosque is nice visit. The area is quite and peaceful. There are many shops around the mosque. If you are there, go to teleferik (Cable car) to see wonder view of golden horn. You may also plan to visit Miniatürk which is a nice attraction nearby (opposite side of golden horn).

We came here as part of a Golden Horn, Eyup, Pierre Lotti trip. Speaking as a non-Muslim I can see the excitement and happiness people had to be here at this mosque as they were going in to pray. I did think that there were quite of lot of shops and souvenir places around it though, this took away some... More

Another most seen place. You will feel the peace in every time. But especially go to the place during the morning pray. Hz. Eyup is quite important person and he hosted Hz Muhammed in his home in Medina for 7 months. One of the spiritual place that I am happy to be

The Mosque is situated in the district of Eyüp on the European side of Istanbul, near the Golden Horn. It was the first mosque constructed by the Ottoman Turks following the conquest of Constantinople. Eyüp Sultan a companion of prophet Muhammed (SAW) is buried alongside the mosque. His tomb attracts many devout worshippers. We visited at a quieter time in... More

The mosk is beautiful; the cemetary arround it is very serene and picturesque. You can be a bit of a vouaeur, observing local people visiting what is believed to be the holiest shrine in Istanbul. I am not a spiritual person myself, but still, the atmosphere there is very special. Even though we were obviously tourtists we were not harassed... More

Eyup Sultan Mosque is not to be missed. The area is a little less touristy than Sultanahmet, and Abu Ayub al-Ansari (whom the Mosque is named after) is SUCH an important person in Islamic history that you must come to Eyup Sultan Mosque when in istanbul. I also really enjoyed the little shops directly in from of the Mosque.

I have visited Eyup Sultan because it's been described as the holiest part of the city. But I was little dissappointed after seeing all those sellersman around the mosque. For such a place where thousands of people are going for just praying god, an army of salesman creates disharmony.

The structure and the posture of people visiting there is really like in stories. You can see how people pray for Allah and the holly man who had a graveyard there. They are willing to get true of their wishes and wills. They believe that they need to pray like these holly persons grave yards. May be it is true... More
