This is very much a working Mosque, not quite as touristy as the Blue Mosque, and despite its name, not new either. Visiting here is straightforward, and it's easy just to pop in while you are visiting other nearby sights or en route for the Galata Bridge. The courtyard is particularly attractive, and the location stunning.

This "New Mosque" is 3 1/2 centuries old and commands a view of the Golden Horn on one side with the spice bazaar on the other side.

This mosque is worth a visit as it is massive with great architecture. The place, while it is religious, seems very receptive to non- believers. Thing to remember however is to cover your head down to shoulders (if you are woman) and your legs, till below your knees. The beauty of the mosque is visible from afar, savour it and... More

This "New" Mosque or "Yeni Çamii," is three and a half centuries old, and still as imposing a structure in Istanbul as any other. Not just the inside of this Çamii is beautiful, but sitting outside on the stairs, with a view of the Golden Horn on the one side, and the terrace of the Spice Bazaar on the other,... More

I visited several mosques in Istanbul, and this is one of my favorite three. Even though the central position makes it very crowded, this place retains an authentic atmosphere. Furthermore, the carvings are of top quality, and the view you get from the square to the front especially in the sunlight of late afternoon is reallly special.

Before going to Spice Market I visitied that mosque. It is so close to Galata Bridge. If you like mosques and you have already visited Blue Mosque, Rustme Pasha and Suleymaniye Mosque and willing to see more this is a good place.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighborhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
