We caught the local ferry and sailed up the Golden Horn to Eyup and the Sultan Mosque. The day we travelled there it appeared to be a local festival or day of religious importance. It was very busy with local people and a service was taking place when we were there. We were therefore unable to enter the Mosque and withdrew so that we did not disturb the celebrations. The exterior is in keeping with other Mosques. Eyup is a district different from the historical centre of the city. It has a 'holiday' feeling about it and the area is obviously by the inhabitants of Istanbul. It is well worth the (very cheap) ferry trip which we paid for using our Istanbulcard.
