This view of Istanbul is certainly surrounded by specials feelings. Not only because there is an important cemetery based on Sultan Eyup tomb, but for the incredible landscape you see from the hill and an incredible layout of tombs and parks that makes you forget where you are, or even better, it makes you understand than life and death are...

This is the most holiest place in istanbul, the tomb of Hazrat Abu Ayub Ansari (a companion of our Prophet PBUH). Just opposite the tomb is the Ayub ansari masjid which is reflecting traditional architecture with dombs & pencil minaret. The adjoining graveyard is reserved for burying sultans & high rank officials (even of todays era).

A bit off the beaten path, but very worthwhile visiting. Not a real touristy place, more suitable for a pilgrimage to a holy site. This is a good place to observe an authentic Turkish environment, away from the camera click-click of busloads of clueless tourists. One of the older cemeteries is just up the hill. Venture in and lose yourself... More

Eyup Sultan history should be googled before visiting this spiritual cite to thourghly enjoy the visit.. Head scarf should be worn when visiting the mosque. The walkway leads to cable cart with stunning views, its a mininal cost but worth the visit.

This a spiritual place. One can easily reach it by bus from Eminounu 99 and 99A. Is a little walk from the Bus stop. The Masoleum of Hazrat Abu Ayub Ansari is in the courtyard of the Mosque. Great Experience.

Another great mosque with great surroundings. When you have finished this visit, take the funicular up to Pierre Loti at the top and enjoy a drink and a beautiful panoramic view.

So much respect for our beloved prophet's companion, the district and mosque named after Hazrat Abu Ayoob ansari. The chosen host of our prophet on his arrival in Madina, ge us laid to rest here during the conquest of Constantinople. A spiritual and place.

This place had a beautiful sense of spiritualness attached to it people from all over were visiting. We took a ferry over rather than other transport. It was very busy an takes around 30 mins, once you get off follow the hustle bustle of people through the market stalls until you reach a square. There we prayed Asar salah and... More
