Overview

Famed architect Sinan built this majestic structure for one of the greatest rulers of the Ottoman Empire. Although this mosque is less ornate, there are many similarities between it and the Hagia Sophia since the same architect was responsible for both.

A beautiful clean mosque - well worth visiting if you’re staying for a short period of time. Ladies should dress modestly - if you can, bring your own headscarf so you don’t have to wear the reusable ones provided. They sell cheap scarves ( <30...More

Very large building. The proportions are impressive, the volume gigantic. We appreciated our visit and the calm moments away from the noisy city.

I really love this Mosque. It's so beautiful and the whole area around it is so peaceful and pretty. In summer you could just sit and relax on the lawn after prayer and admire the view from the top. The Mosque inside is beautiful and...More

Absolutely beautiful mosque to visit. Ladies must have head, legs and shoulders covered. But they will happily provide you with temporary garments to wear inside. Men must wear trousers or shorts that come below the knees. Also you must take your shoes off. Walk around...More

This was likely the nicest and grandest mosque we visited in Istanbul. The outside area is really nice too and the grounds and view of the city are very nice.

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

I agree with the others who have answered so far. The best decision I made was getting myself a data package as soon as I landed. That way, I could read up on any place when I was there or before going.
