Eyup Sultan was the standard bearer for the Prophet Mohammed as well as the last survivor of his inner circle of trusted companions and is highly revered in islamic history.

Turkey has done a superb job in restoring the Mazar's of all Sahaba and build mosques around them. Very well kept and very clean, its a must for all the Muslims. Adjacent to the mosque is the Mazar of Hazat Ayub Ansari - a prominent companion of our Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam
