“White Mosque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

This mosque is in close proximity to Istanbul University and Grand Bazaar. Like any other mosques in Istanbul, the architecture or the interior looks very similar although it was closed for renovation but the exterior of this mosque is fascinating to look at. It is one of the oldest mosques in Istanbul. It is in a very busy area especially when it is next to the busy bazaar.

“Just another mosque”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Beyazit mosque which means the white mosque, is located near Istanbul university. The main architecture of the mosque is not too different from other mosques in Istanbul and if you visited the other great mosques in Istanbul you can skip this one.
Each evening a local Bazar will be held in front of the mosque.
some parts of this mosque is under restoration at the moment.

“Beautiful mosque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

In the busy Beyazit Square, just outside of the Grand Bazaar. This is the oldest surviving imperial mosque in Istanbul (finished in 1506). It looks impressive from outside and it's so lively around. Unfortunately I was trying to get inside for 3 days, but this mosque was closed (I think renovation). Next time (soon) I will try my chances again inside. It is still worth to get there to take few pictures and see as well Istanbul University Gate.

Beautiful mosque from the outside, couldn't really see much of the inside due to renovation. Located right by Grand Bazaar.

“A beatifulMosque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Located by the Grand Bazaar is spectacular and more local taste than the Blue Mosque.
Should be visited definitely.
although it is not spectacular as Sultanahmet and Suleymaniye Mosques my opinion is this is also a masterpiece with its architecture.
