WOW what a place to visit. So beautiful and peaceful. The tomb is a must. Unbelievable piece of history. Easy to get to from Eminomu by ferry. Although there are no signs in English still very easy to find. Set in a lovely location within walking distance of everything u need. Walk to the cable car for amazing views of... More

This is a great place especially for muslims. Its clean, organized and fun if you are the type that enjoys the basic life style of sitting opposite to the fountain on the steps & eating your corn or ice-creams. Lots of cafes & restaurants around which we didn't try. Simit Saray is a good one though. We prayed in the... More

Take the ferry from Eminonu and see the tomb as well as the mosque which holds one of the richest Muslim history in Istanbul. It is definitely one of the most crowded mosques of the city which is normally packed with hundreds, maybe thousands,of worshipers every day. The environment is awesome and you really feel privileged to have visited this... More

An interesting historical tomb to visit. A little hard to travel to as we took a bus then had to walk up to the tomb. The site was busy with locals. No guided tour and very little signage around in engish to help ascertain what various monuments were. Guidebooks said very little about the site so maybe a tour guide... More

We took the ferry from Eminomu without thinking that this was lunchtime on the last Friday of Ramazan. As a result we couldn't see the tomb and only spent 2 minutes in the mosque before being shushed out (not because we weren't Muslims but because it was getting too crowded). The whole area was packed with thousands of pilgrims, the... More
