Visited Eyüp a few times but this was the first time I went into the mosque as I wasn't sure whether I was able to before. The guidebooks have always mentioned it's a conservative neighbourhood & the religious/ spirutual importance of the mosque & tomb...More

A lovely little mosque that at present is under scaffolding ,.... but you can still see the tiles in corners and enjoy the building its worth having a look because it is off the tourist track and pretty central

I personally wanted to visit the Eyup Sultan Mosque because of the status of Eyup Ansar and got to see a few more Islamic relics.

Visiting the great Eyüp sultan, the host of our very worthy Prophet, who was accepted as a saint even in the Byzantine Empire ... This 7th century tomb carries one of the most valuable people in this world. Hz. Muhammad's host should definitely be visited

This is a must-visit for any Muslim who wishes to benefit from the barakah of visiting the awliya. Give salams to this sahabi and learn of his background and story. Go for tahajjud if you can manage it.
