While taking the Bosphorus tour we decided to end our tour in Ortakoy mainly because we had heard a lot about the amazing Bosphorus view from Ortakoy central plaza and this small beautiful mosque.

The mosque indeed is very beautiful and very quiet. And you get an amazing view of Bosphorus and can also even see Camlica hill and Camlica mosque from here. But there is nothing else to do in Ortakoy. It's famous for its Kumpir but you can find equally good Kumpir in other parts of Istanbul as well. I would recommend travellers to go there only if you are staying in Istanbul for at least 5 days and have some time in hand to spend an evening here.

Mecidiye Mosque is located on the Gazi Evrenos Street of Yeşilköy area of Bakırköy Town in İstanbul and it is the oldest Mosque in Yeşilköy.Very convenient and great location where you can reach by various public bus services.İt is small mosque and has its own charasterics with its nicely made construction.This is not a very old Mosque like yhe other ones in İstanbul.Good to be here if you are touring Yeşilköy area for any reason,it is nice to make a stopover and have some time here.Fascinating.

Mecidiye Mosque also known as the Ortaköy Mosque, is on of the hidden gems of Istanbul. Combine a visit to the Mecidiye Mosque with the Bosphorus Bridge (10 min walk) and Dolmabahce Palace (30min walk).
Situated in Ortaköy old meets new. With the Mecidiye Mosque and on the background the Bosphorus bridge, this is a stunning place to visit and to take pictures.
At sunset this place is even more brilliant.

This small mosque, also known as the Ortakoy Mosque, has a picturesque location by the water and close to the Bosphorus Bridge. It can be reached on foot after visiting the Dolmabahce Palace (half hour walk) and many cruise boats stop nearby. There is a small square adjacent to the mosque on the water's edge (with some restaurants) from which good photographs of the mosque, water and bridge can be taken (best late morning to early afternoon). Entrance to the mosque by tourists is subject to the usual requirements for appropriate apparel.

Although not grandiose by its size it is one of the most beautiful example of Islamic architecture. The mosque was built in neo-baroque style near by the sea, on at. In the interior of the mosque, there are wide windows which refract its reflection in water as well as daylight, featuring a magnificent view of the Bosphorus

Ortaköy Mosque is an elegant building full of light. Its interior is dominated by pastel colours. I would not say that it is better than other mosques in Istanbul. Its surroundings are very busy and touristic.

We were prompted to visit the place by a local and were not disappointed. A lovely setting around the mosque, while inside its pastel colours and calm quiet, really lifted our hearts. Great for photos too, especially near the sunset.
