Eyup Sultan is a place you should visit in order to see and understand what the real Istanbul is. It is the most popular place that you can see the Islamic part of the country. Beside all the modern experiences you can have in Taksim or Beyoğu, Eyüp Sultan shows you the very conservative part of the Istanbul. Eyup Sultan is the tomb of a Islamic saint who has died at the siege of Istanbul by Muslims first time. The actual corpse of the Eyüp Sultan is still missing. But the Sultan Mehmet (the conqurer of the Istanbul) saw the place of tomb in his dreams twice and ordered an mosque and tomb to be built at the place he saw in his dream, in the name of Eyup Sultan. Around the mosque there are many tombs which belong to the important persons who served Ottoman Empire. You can feel the mystic atmosphere around Eyup Sultan and have a walk to Pier Loti for a magnificent view of Golden Horn.

Mashallah Eyup Sultan was a spirutually enlightening place but still very busy even though away from the hussle and bussle of main centre of Istanbul. It is kept immacutley clean and best to visit early morning so to avoid rush. Has a huge graveyard on a hill behind it. Pierre Loti cable car is literally next door almost. I got a taxi from blue mosque and it should cost around 20 tl. Spectacular place and highly recommended even if you arent religious. See it for its design and a nice fountain too. Lovely atmosphere esp when couples are married as they give everyone free sweets. ?

My wife and I visited the mosque just a few days back. She being very religious was overwhelmed with emotions. We were on a guided tour and the guide was so very patient to explain about the history behind, we could literally visualise what might have taken place all those centuries back. It was very satisfying to do a short prayer there. The mosque is quite beautiful, but it was the good feelings that we experienced while visiting is something we will always remember.

Must see this site for all muslims. Pilgrims attending are all so nice and friendly they also share sweets with children. If you are going with family please also visit Pierre Loti Cafe and the tourist hill accessible through a sky kart.
