Istanbul University is located on Beyazit Square. It was established by the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II in the fourteenth century. The Istanbul University gate is very big and nice, do not forget to take a photo with the background of the gate :)

The entrance gate to the university looks really impressive and is well worth a visit. I combined it with a walk through the Grand Bazaar which isn't too far away. Unfortunately it seems that casual visitors aren't allowed inside the university itself.

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
