Named for the Ottoman conqueror of Istanbul, this mosque was part of a large religious complex atop one of the city's many hills. Among the other original buildings in the complex were a school, library and hospital.

Fetih mosque is relatively popular with tourists but a little away from the tourist areas. This mosque has a grandness and power within it's architecture. From some angles it is reminiscent of the architecture of Masjid e Nabwi in Medina shareef.

This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of
Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community,
the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and
some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art

witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving
ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene
shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid
