Could not believe it that this mosque based on such busy place is so silent. From my window I looked on this mosque very often and still have this feeling to enter there for a moment.

The New Mosque is a beautifully appointed, colorful mosque, with lots of colored tiles, stained glass, and beauty everywhere. Make sure you take your shoes off, and ladies need scarves. The fountains in the rear courtyard are very pretty, and lead directly into the spice bazaar. It's worth a visit. It is right next to the pier for the ferry... More

Although they call this the New Mosque, it is 300 years old. It is not as large as the Blue Mosque, but is is very beautiful and worth seeing.

I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Istanbul during the time of Ramadan! Everyone in the mosque was sleeping and praying, it was wonderful to see. Please be respectful and wear the appropriate clothing and do not scoff when they ask to cover your hair. This is their home and place to pray! It was interesting to find... More

Although called the new Mosque it is actually an old mosque. Lovely courtyard busy with people preparing to enter or leaving the mosque. Inside visitors are welcome in most parts. The roof is amazing.

I visited the New Mosque on a Tuesday afternoon just before the noon hour. It was fairly quiet; only a handful of other visitors and tourists were there. Beautiful domes and tiles. Not as large as the Blue Mosque or the Fatih Mosque, but it is still very impressive and lovely. It is also conveniently located to very delicious restaurants... More

If you're into stunning architecture and history, you should visit this place. It's not exactly new, but newer than the blue mosque (500 years old). Best visit during the early morning, not much tourists. And wear long pants.
