I had described the rustem Pasha camii as bluer then the Blue Mosque, but this has even more blue decoration. From afar, there seem to be an incredible number of small domes surrounding the main dome. It appears to be surrounded by a swarm of domes. The interior is stunning. Originally built for the mother of Memet III, it was... More

This is a huge mosque in the Eminonu area. It is about 1-2 km walk from the Sultanahmet square. Very well decorated mosque. The Bosphorus bridge and boat are near it. A must visit.

It was built around 1665 so it is not that new but the name it is popularly known as is the New Mosque. It is near the Spice Bazaar but I always think the people mistaken it for other mosques because of the similar architecture.

It is probably a great facility. However it's under major construction so unable to enter. It near the Spice Bazaar so if there check it out.

this mosque is in Eminonu on the Golden Horn not far from the Egyptian bazaar and it gives istanbul some of its islamic architecture. it appears in many pictures specifically with the pigeons flying around it or being fed by tourists and locals.

This place is open for any tourists to see how local people pray during prayer time. Don't forget to respect their religion by following the rules while entering the mosque. Very impressive interiors and exteriors - so much history behind it although it is actually called a new mosque.

Nice mosque for praying. It is near the Spice Pazar. It has a nice sea view. Very clean carpet. Wonderful voice of Azan "prayer calling".

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
