Fatih Mosque is beautiful mosque. Around, you can walk along the beautiful streets of Fatih place. There are also interesting shops of local merchandise and items, very interesting and unique: bags, clothes for woomen, accessories and more! There is also a beautiful fountain with statues of some Turkish famous legends!

The Fatih Mosque is stunning. It has a huge courtyard which is very peaceful. It's definitely less touristy in comparison to other well known Mosques in Istanbul, but it's simply lovely.

I been to Fatih Mosque for my 2nd last day and on my last day in Istanbul. With less traffic in the morning and paid less than 17 Lira, I managed to reach the destination and visit the Makam as I was unable to enter the day before. ( it was pretty late). The feeling when you enter the mosque... More

Much like the Blue Mosque, this place gives you a sense of how mosques used to be centres of learning and living, not unlike the temple in Jerusalem.

Staying in Fener & Balat

Neighborhood Profile
Fener & Balat
This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community, the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid sights, historic attractions, stunning vistas, and warm Turkish welcome, the area remains largely unperturbed by the tourist trade that characterizes the atmosphere in nearby Sultanahmet and around the Grand Bazaar. Travelers that like to explore off the beaten track will reap big rewards for making the effort to visit this low-key part of town.
