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.

Since we were right next to this mosque after exiting the Grand Bazaar, we decides to take a look. Before going in, as with all other mosques, we took off our shoes and I covered my head. Other than the Blue Mosque, this is the only one that we saw that had several people praying. The interior is outstandingly beautiful... More

Yeni Camii was not a mosque on my Must Do list but I am so delighted that we stumbled upon it while trying to find our way to Suleimaniye Mosque from Kabatas tram stop. Beautiful , peaceful and huge. Lovely courtyard and gardens outside. close to spice bazaar.

Only in Istanbul would a 500 year old mosque be called New. But honestly, nothing spectacular esp after coming out of Aya Sophia and the blue mosque.

I'm surprised this doesn't make more 'must visit' lists. Situated right at the base of the Galata Bridge, this giant mosque is easily accessible and authentic. I found it to be bustling yet peaceful. The tile and windows are decorative, it has a large prayer room and is picturesque. We sat and watched the prayer, and felt the sense if... More
