One of the most spectacular small mosques

Located a bit off the touristic route, this small mosque is probably one of the best and most beautiful small Ottoman mosques.

Just like the Blue Mosque, do not miss this place. Take the tour, the opulence and beauty is incredible. I don't remember how much the tour cost, but it wasn't much.

We really enjoyed a casual visit to this mosque which was in our neighborhood. We were surprised by how light and airy it felt inside. It was very beautiful and well worth a pop in. It's easy to do this a a quick visit and continue on with other activities.

This stunning mosque is considered to be one of the major works of Mimar Sinan, the leading architect of the Ottoman Empire's glory days. Of course, that could be said of other mosques as well, including the must-see Suleimaniye. This one, however, combines well with other activities, which is something you need to take into account when choosing which of... More

No tapestries or adornments the breeze is wonderful! A gift from the Sultan. The beauty is in the architecture as you can see from this small picture. Do not miss the stories on the harem!

We walked to this exquisite mosque built by the great Sinan from the Chora Church - no more than ten minutes. After all the crowds in the more central and popular sites, we found the serenity of this oasis wonderfully refreshing.

Staying in Fener & Balat

Neighborhood Profile
Fener & Balat
This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community, the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid sights, historic attractions, stunning vistas, and warm Turkish welcome, the area remains largely unperturbed by the tourist trade that characterizes the atmosphere in nearby Sultanahmet and around the Grand Bazaar. Travelers that like to explore off the beaten track will reap big rewards for making the effort to visit this low-key part of town.
