This mosque was positioned on a hill overlooking the harbor at Eminonu. Today, the local pigeons make their home in its graceful domes and arches.

I had described the rustem Pasha camii as bluer then the Blue Mosque, but this has even more blue decoration. From afar, there seem to be an incredible number of small domes surrounding the main dome. It appears to be surrounded by a swarm of...More

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.

It was built around 1665 so it is not that new but the name it is popularly known as is the New Mosque. It is near the Spice Bazaar but I always think the people mistaken it for other mosques because of the similar architecture.

It is probably a great facility. However it's under major construction so unable to enter. It near the Spice Bazaar so if there check it out.

Nice mosque for praying. It is near the Spice Pazar. It has a nice sea view. Very clean carpet. Wonderful voice of Azan "prayer calling".

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

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
