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.

Really worth seeing. The size , colours and overall we thought that it was more impressive than the Blue Mosc but both worth seeing but maybe best to see on different days.

Probably the most visited historic mosque in Istanbul and certainly the mosque with the most attractive dome and interior, in my opinion it doesn't compare to the magical charm and architectural beauty of Suleymaniye. Nonetheless, definitely worth visiting, if for no other reason than because of it close proximity to both Hagia Sophia and Topkapi.

This mosque and Rustem Pasha Mosque are 2 mosques a little off the beaten path that are truly well worth your time and effort to find and visit. Mihrimah Sultan Mosque is atypical in that it is light, and bright and feels, would you believe, airy. The 3 rows of windows under the huge dome flood the white interior with... More

Beautiful mosque and wasn't very busy as most tourists tend to go to the blue mosque which our guide said was now very over popularised and often people que for hours just to go inside. Location is great as its next the the grand bazaar so we're were able to go there straight afterwards.

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.
