Entrance is crowdy, but inside it is quiet and peaceful. The enty is for free, you must take off your shoes and wear a scarf on your head. The interior is beautiful, however similar to other mosques in Istanbul. The visitors can walk only in a designated part of the mosque.

This is definitely worth the visit just to see the religious custom that takes place here as well as admire the arts and the building. And it's free too! Just be aware the visitors entrance can be hard to find but it is just outside the mosque to the right of the main entrance.

This was a stunning mosque right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of old Istanbul. The colours, the architecture - delightful

I was expecting to see a modern design when our guide told us that we are visiting a new mosque unfortunately upon arrival we get to know is as old as 400 years. The design and construction of the new mosque is superb it is really a nice place to visit.

you should miss this mosque in Istanbul. the entry is free and you need to moderately dressed as you need to be in Blue Mosque. This is called new mosque but is actually older than blue mosque. The mosque is walkable from Eminou tram station. The square between the mosque and Spice Bazar gives great opportunity for photo enthusiasts. Best... More

Beautiful mosque! When we visited it happened to be prayer time, I didn't think we'd be allowed in but we were. We were allowed to sit and watch and felt very welcome. Such a peaceful experience, definitely recommend it!

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.
