It's a little far from other famous attractions in the old city, but it also keeps the quiet mosques that are supposed to be, and you can feel the peace of religion, and there's a local open air market next to it every Wednesday.
amazing place to visite , I recommand it
Enormous. Ye another Sinan the architect' creations. This mosque is no stranger to tourists but less so than the Blue or Suleiman mosques.Sadly for us women we are not allowed on the expansive ground floor. Not ever, not just not during prayer times. Instead women are hand escorted to the second floor tony balcony. Great view for sure. But the difference in experience, access and treatment was not lost on me. Maybe women don't need to pray as much as men? Regardless it is gorgeous in its architecture, carpets, decorations. Definitely well worthy the trek.Note: Fatih is a conservative and traditional neighborhood so be respectful and cover up. You will see women with head scarves in this part of Istanbul along with black flowing robes and dresses. None of this cool, hip, chique fashion as in The posh parts of town.
I've never heard about this mosque in traveling books before. Just seen in a map then I went here. No tram around here, might be I didn't know. This is a huge mosque in Fatih district. And there are many booths around there, sold dessert, books, cloths and others. Someone told me that they sold for charity and brought the money to help the others like as students who have no money for learning. It's cool to do like this.The architect inside Fatih Mosque is also beautiful even less than the Blue Mosque. But it is one of Turkish-Islamic architecture in Istanbul.
