One of the smaller mosques in the city, it was built by Rustem Pasa in 1561 and is noted for the very fine tiles covering the interior and exterior walls.

This mosque is one of architect Sinan's masterpieces. Besides being a beautiful example of his work, the "sampler" tile wall on the exterior is one of its most unusual features. Be sure to spend time exploring the wonderful Iznik tiles on the interior.

A hidden gem. If you don't look up, you'll miss it. But thankfully we had a friend show us this place, it seems like it was the prototype of all mosques around Istanbul. What I really liked it the way we took to find it...More

As beautiful and awe-inspiring as the Blue Mosque is, I would have to say that this one was actually my favorite. The Iznik tile is gorgeous, and the smaller scale made me feel more welcome. Once you find your way in (up some stairs, which...More

This was a wonderful Mosque to visit after the Suleymaniye Mosque. The Rustem Pasha Mosque is very small and nearly completely covered with blue tile. Absolutely beautiful.

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
