This is housed inside the Hagia Sophia complex but with a separate (and free) entrance to the side. Exiting Hagia Sophia and turn left, walk down to the end and then turn left again. You'll be facing the entrance to Topkapi Palace complex in the distance. To your left you'll see some shops, the entrance to the Sultans' Turbes is... More

There are Sultans' Turbes just behind the Aya Sofia. Inside of each turbes are decorated with Iznik tiles and I think these turbes are both historically and artistically important considering they are at the center of Sulanahmet area. There's no entrance fee, and not so crowded, so you can spend quietly here.

Not so easy to find, this place has a very important historical meaning. There are for sure better spots in Istanbul, but if by chance you have the time it is for sure a good idea to get into. Entrance is for free.

Thank Davide G

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
