When aoutside you realize the size of their minarets. In the inside you understand the perfection of the roof and the colours of the paintings. In the doors looking to thr Bosphurous you see a dynamic city with cars, ships, people, buses, metro, with plenty of life. Ferry boats to Asia, seagulls, people hurry in the streat, that´s the charm... More

Yoni Cami is a very large mosque which dominates the waterfront by the Galata bridge. It has entrances near the Eminonu tram stop (close to the Spice Market) and the back entrance is in Sirkeci. Nice ablution facilities in Sirkeci down the escalator for use with1TL. Local folk relax on benches in the gardens at the Sirkeci entrance. A very... More

The New Mosque is located right by the sea where you can get the fairy from to visit other areas. Great to look at and inside is absolutely amazing. Wait until the sun sets and watch it change as the lights come onto it. Stunning

Situated right next to the Spice Market and facing the Galata bridge, this mosque is a rival to the Blue Mosque. Exquisitely beautiful and peaceful, and with much fewer people there is no long queue and a greater feeling of serenity inside. A contrast ro the craziness and clamour of the crowds in the bustling market outside. Headcover required for... More

I guess because it's only about 400 or so years old it's considered 'new' but this mosque is anything but. It's location on the waterfront is very prime and just like most of the mosques in Istanbul it is incredibly beautiful and such a treat to behold on the inside. We came as prayers were letting out so it was... More

This mosque in Eminonu is hardly new but everything is relative in Istanbul age wise! It is located on a plaza square and is ideal for taking photos of its exterior. At night it is beautifully lit, and easy to access.
