One of the bests places in the city. Situated next to the Grand Bazaar, this mosque depicts Islamic art and history. It was commissioned by Sultan Bayezid II of the Ottoman Empire and it later went on to undergo many changes till date.

If you walk around the old city you will come across many mosques. This one is just off Ordu Caddesi near Beyazit square. There was work going on on the exterior of the mosque but you could make out it's Ottoman style structure.

Still under construction, but we saw the exterior. It is an Ottoman imperial mosque located in the Beyazıt Square area of Istanbul, Turkey, near the ruins of the Forum of Theodosius of ancient Constantinople. Beyazit mosque is one of the oldest in Istanbul, was completed in 1506 on the orders of Sultan Beyazıt II.

Its a little way out of town, with a captivating, multi-domed mosque complex of austere beauty, startlingly stranded amongst ploughed fields. We were advised that it was closed for renovation but pressed on to see its overall geometry. The walled enclosure housed a health museum with consulting rooms and a small garden sheltered by an arcade. At the end of... More

The mosque s adjacent to the Grand Bazaar which makes it easy to visit. Although during my visit the main part of the mosque was closed for renovations the mosque from outside looks good and the exterior walls seem to hold a beautiful interior.

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.
