This l6th-century mosque, built on the slope of a hill near Sultanahmet, is one of the most beautiful examples of classical Turkish architecture in the city. Of special interest are the prayer niches and pulpit, which are covered in lovely Iznik...more

Sokullu Mehmet Paşa Mosque in Kadırga is a real gem designed by the great Sinan himself. It is a place the spirituality of which is enhanced when you are there all alone. This happened to me on my last visit to Istanbul one Sunday morning....More

Come here to see exquisite tiling and a mosque designed by Imperial architect Sinan, who designed three mosques for this grand Vizier! This is walking distance from Little Hagia Sophia and is known for having 4 small fragments of the black stone
If you are even just marginally interested in history or architecture, this small mosque is worth a visit. It's located near to Sultanahmet, yet far enough from the crowds to preserve a totally different character.

Beautiful little mosque with nearly no visitors. The tiles are amazing and the atmosphere is so peaceful and special you just want to sit and absorb. Often closed it is best to try and see this right after parayer time.

This is not frequented by visitors but it really should be. It's a beautiful mosque with vivid blue tiles adorning the mimbar inside. It's striking yet few have heard of it or visit it. Glad we found this gem.
This mosque was so much close to my hotel (Art City Hotel). It was the first mosque in Istanbul that I tried to visit. The architecture and structure were both masterpiece of Ottoman empire. It is so much close to the sultan Ahmet district but...More
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
