This new mosque, opened in 2019, is the largest mosque in Turkey. It is visible from many parts of the city and sits atop a high hill overlooking the Bosphorus. The platform gives impressive views. Beneath the mosque is a museum of Islam, containing a number of artefacts significant to Islam, particularly in a Turkish context. The mosque itself is very large, but not as ornate as other mosques in the city. It is definitely worth seeing if one is in the area, as the scale is very impressive, but if one has only a short time in Istanbul, it might be better to concentrate on the more historic mosques.
