The Beyazit mosque and the majestic entrance to Istanbul University dominate this important square with a history going back 1700 yrs. Always lively and with low end commerce going on. All the university students give the place a certain vibe.

Beyazit square or previously known as Freedom square is home to many shops, Istanbul University and Beyazit mosque. It is close to the Grand baazar. From there you can take tram T1 that will take you to famous Sultanahmet district.

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
