Eyup mosque

Very impressive outside. Too bad we came after closing time, so we could not see the inside. The hill top location and fonicular descending added to the experience.

Whether you are a Muslim or not, you will be moved by the crowds praying in the shrine and queuing in front of the relics of Prophet Muhammad.

Abu Eyup Ansari was a host of the Prophet and later he spent his life to introduce God to people. The mosque is big and clean. The only issue is that... More

In the center of this area located Eyup Pasha mosque. This is nicely decorated mosque with traditional ceramics and phrases from Holy Book- Quran. For lovers of Arabic Language- Istanbul... More

Eyup Sultan was the standard bearer for the Prophet Mohammed as well as the last survivor of his inner circle of trusted companions and is highly revered in islamic history. I was privileged to have visited the tomb... More
