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.

Went to the Eyup Mosque during Ramadan. It was crowded but just lovely. You can peek into one of the windows and see the tomb of Eyüp Sultan. It's a must see in my opinion. You can then walk up to Pierre Loti for a tea and enjoy the beautiful view overlooking Istanbul.

This was our first Mosque and loved that is wasn't one of the tourist ones - it was free! This active Mosque has a very interesting cemetery and Ottoman-style streets nearby. There was a religious celebration for young boys while we were there that was informative. There is a cable-car also that affords a most beautiful view of the city and takes you up to a cafe where you can get in the shade and enjoy a cup of tea.

Not only for the Eyüp mosque but for the neighbouthood named the same, the visit of Eyüp mosque is maybe one of the most realistic visit in Istambul area as this neighbourhood is very populous. The mosque is entirely used by the Istambul people as the sacred place it is and for that reason you will not find tourist annoying with their fault of respect or taking pictures anywere. You can see the families celebrating the Sünet ceremony and the just married brides sharing sugar with the people. This corner of Istanbul is undoubtedly the most religious emanating place. for those who like to go out of the massified circuits.
