Though there are many mosques dotted around Eminonu, this is one of the notable landmark if you are at the Galata Bridge or around that area. This mosque is less crowded but still beautiful nonetheless. Outside the mosque, you can watch the world go by, seeing kids chasing pigeons, admiring Karakoy with the Galata Tower over the golden horn and... More

This is an impressive mosque that is adjacent to the also " must see" Spice Bazaar. Carpets and tiles are very colorful and intricate, and it was not as crowded as the Blue Mosque. Very accessible to the rest of the Sultanahmet district and the Galata bridge. A great place to photograph.

We caught a ferry from the Asian side to get to Eminonu and visited the New Mosque. It was very peaceful and quiet that I could contemplate a little on life:) It was a plus that it was also close to the spice bazaar and to numerous shops if you love shopping. A beautiful and living historical architecture to be... More

You can go from Taksim to New mosque in eminonu by metro to eminonu station. The new mosque is a very old historical mosque but yet a very beautiful and peaceful one.

Situated right at the end of the Galata bridge, this mosque is the perfect subject for sunsets over the strait. Like the blue mosque, it is still an active mosque so it is peaceful and calming if you spend a few moments alone introspecting. Do carry your camera and take some lovely pictures from outside.

When visiting this camii, one could enjoy many thing: 1. Praying in breath-taking architectural environment. 2. Watching people from all walks of life strolling around the place or relaxing on the many benches that are scattered outside the building. 3. Enjoy shopping in the numerous shops flanking the cami. 4. Sample some of the food everywhere around.

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
