You can still enter this mosque but it is covered for the largest part as it is under restoration. As a lot of places in Istanbul.

We went to visit this great mosque - however it's under renovation and everything is shut off, no original features can be seen. Don't bother to visit at this moment as it will be a waste of time

This is a huge mosque in the Eminonu area. It is about 1-2 km walk from the Sultanahmet square. Very well decorated mosque. The Bosphorus bridge and boat are near it. A must visit.

Yes it is. But not for tourists. So the mosque is open, but there is a huge sign and staff watching over. If you want to go for prayer (if you're muslim), it's ok. Blue mosque, likewise is opened I believe all night long... More
