I visited this mosque on Wednesday while all the neighbourhood was occupied by the Wednesday market stalls. It was an amazing mosque, its architecture looks similar to the one of Sultanahmet mosque, and the surrounding area is very wide and provided with seats and sunshades...More

I found lots of lovely mosques in istanbul. This was one of them. Although after the blue mosque nothing impressed me as much but it was still a serene place to visit with a historical twist :)

We listen when history talk. Fatih is the leader Mohd Fatih who liberate Qustanteena or what we call now Istanbul. Mosque is really great, a big place for washing, amazing interior ambience. Many fountains in the outer garden. A must visit.

We took a metered cab from the Blue mosque area to Fatih mosque and was charged close to 20Lira. The place is beautiful and peaceful. When visiting Istanbul, do travel to Fatih and Eyup mosques for dining and shopping. These are hassle-free places unlike Sultanahmet.

This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of
Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community,
the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and

Dear John, I am not sure about the accesses, as I did not pay attention to that, but as the lady just mentioned, it is uphill, on a pedestrian street, but not far from the main street. You can always rest on a cafe... More
