This place is so peaceful! When I went here, I couldn't believe I was still in Istanbul, so calm and quiet, lots of greenery, scenic beauty. There is also cable car to reach the top. If you are looking to escape the busy, crowded and noisy city center, this is a wonderful place to be.

A very nice and busy place! If you have a passion to visit Sahaba Karam RA, then must go! Remember there are more tombs in the premises which we only later found and so we missed praying Fatiha at many important tombs. Ask people in mosque!

Pilgrims can pay respects at the tomb and pray in the mosque. Outside, you will find a lineup of busy restaurants and shops selling souvenirs. In Ramadan, the atmosphere... More

Eyup Sultan Mosque is not just another Ottamon mosque in a city filled with them. It is the premier Islamic pilgrimage site in the city, which makes this an interesting choice for people hoping to learn more about Istanbul's long and fascinating religious history.

It was an old operational mosque with different architecture, but it was so crowded and people didn't treat me friendly because i did not have hijab, even they send me out of one of side shops.
