I actually preferred the New mosque to the Blue mosque. It may have been that I didn't have such high expectations. There were no queues to get in and there was a lovely central courtyard and the inside was beautifully tiled and carpeted. There were also far less visitors so it was easy to look around. A more relaxing mosque... More

I loved the decorated interior, complex painted ceilings and patterned tiles. It wasn't too crowded when I visited. Tourists are kept within a certain area to avoid interrupting the prayers, but that wasn't too limiting. Free entry, I just used a scarf to cover head and upper arms.

After two mosques before this one (Blue Mosque & Suleymaniye) this one was the least impressive but still great.It is smaller and a little different but pretty much the same as the others. Definitely worth a visit.

Visited this mosque after the Blue Mosque and while very different it was just as impressive in its own way. Much quieter to visit which makes for a very pleasant experience enjoying the impressive architecture and wondering around without the hassles of a crowd. Well worth the visit.

This is just near the spice market. This is a beautiful mosque even though outside looked similar to sultanahmet or blue mosque We prayed there too. And unlike Blue mosque there is less tourist.

This mosque seems not be quite as famous as the Blue Mosque or Sofia Hagia but it is truly lovely. The interior is stunning. It is so perfectly crafted. Easy to combine with a visit to the Spice Markets next door.

beautiful and not too crowded with tourists. Millions of pigeons outside. You'll definitelly pass by it, you can't miss it at the harbour at Eminonu, so have a look.
