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!

I honestly enjoyed this better then the Blue Mosque. Definitely less crowded and in better condition visually. This place is underrated. Next to spice market and tour ferry docks. A must see and is a quick in and out visit.

After we had visited the Blue Mosque this was another one of our many stops. On our way to the New Mosque we had stopped to sit and relax prior to walking through it, then the call to prayer went off. My male friend washed his feet and hands prior to entering and he was able to participate in the... More

This beautiful, many domed mosque is right next to the Spice bazaar across the street from the Bosporus. It is beautiful, filled with the blue tile that the Turks are famous for. It was very nice and an easy visit with the Spice bazaar....

Another Mosgue yet, with a slightly different personality. The court yard was very impressive for the symmetery. The interior was vast and impressive as well. Very pretty.

This place is as beautiful, if not more so, than the Blue Mosque and worth a visit. The tiles that adorn the walls are fabulous. At certain times of the day it is less crowded than other attractions so you feel less hurried in enjoying the visit.
