The mosque is besides the tomb of Hazrat Ayub Ansari (R.A) a great Sahabi. The camel of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) stooped in front of the house of this Sahabi when the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) migrated from Makkah to Madinah. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) stayed at his place then.The bazar and sitting area besides the mosque and tomb is very nicely kept by the management and is very good for sitting and enjoying the place. It also offers a quite a few restaurants for nice traditional food.

The moque is wonderful.However the area here is just excellent.Spent an evening here.The shops in the area around here are cheaper than sultanahmed and people are very friendly.
We took the cable car up to Pierr Lotte and the view from there is stunning.
P.S The tram does not stop here,so we went to main bus station in Eminunu and took a bus to get here.

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.
