Best way to reach here is to first visit Miniaturk in the morning. Spend 2-3 hours there. Walk into the nearby waterfront. Hire a 3-4 seater power boat to Eyup Sultan. These boats go only there and nowhere else. This short ride is very enjoyable.
We were guided to this by Aaamir, manager of Divalis Hotel, for which we are thankful to him.
The place is named after Ayub Ansari, a companion of Prophet Mohammed(pbuh), who is buried here and a huge mosque attracts lots of visitors. There is a cable car station nearby to take you uphill for a enjoyable sight of the great city from mountain top. One side of the mountain is a grave yard with neatly built grave stones with names engraved. Cable car is very popular with tourists hence be prepared to que up for an hour or two to get your turn.
