Famed architect Sinan built this majestic structure for one of the greatest rulers of the Ottoman Empire. Although this mosque is less ornate, there are many similarities between it and the Hagia Sophia since the same architect was responsible for both.

We went to visit this musjid before jummah on Friday and stayed for the jummah. The talk was in Turkish though so I couldn't understand much. Wonderful experience though and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Blue Mosque is definitely one of the Top things to do in Istanbul. From outside it’s really amazing both day and night. Inside it’s also nice; however, it’s basically just a huge place. You can get appropriate clothes for free, but as you have to take off your shoes and there are a lot of tourists, it’s a bit... More

We are so glad we decided to visit the Suleymaniye Mosque. It was a rainy Sunday morning, our last day in Istanbul, and we took a walk to the mosque. There were almost no people there, so we were able to see the place in all its beauty. From the garden you get a nice view over Galata and the... More

This mosque was amazing and even though large crowds attended it was a moving experience. The tranquillity was evident and was rather humbling.

Inside isn't necessarily worth doing.. I'm not really religious so it probably doesn't tickle my fancy and with so many people sweating there's a ridiculous overwhelming stench of sweat and feet due to everyone with their shoes off.. Seeing it from the outside was enough of a highlight without going in. If you really want to see inside, possibly go... More

This mosque is stunning and unfortunately its not given its due importance. It is less busy then the other main Mosques. From its front garden it commands amazing views of the Bosphorus and Galata area... a view that neither Hagia Sophia nor the Blue Mosque have. The old Chimneys and Hammam domes infront of it give an impression of an... More

Nothing special, you get mosques everywhere. It's a long queue to get in too, so make sure you bring your water.

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.
