It is fascinating how each mosque is so different in architecture, size, and character. I know the tour guide explained why it is called New Mosque even though it is not new. But, I don't remember her explanation at the moment.

This mosque was in the heart of Eminonu, had prayers here. There were some black market sellers here as well, beware of them.

Our guide gave us a fascinating tour of this mosque and explained what all the religious symbolism meant and how the mosque operates. Very interesting, as this was my first visit to a mosque. We also learnt the history of the building and how you tell which member of the Sultan's family sponsors a mosque to be built. Well worth... More

This is an amazing Mosque in a very busy area. The mosque is a master art peace. The location of the mosque is a hub for tourists, as next to it is the Misri/spice Market, and facing the sea.

This might not be the most beautiful or the oldest mosque in Istanbul, and yet it has special vibes in my opinion and I always experience some emotional turmoil when I look at it from a distance, when I stroll in the bazaar and have it right behind me, or when I go in and admire its grandeur.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighborhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
