Owner description: One of the smaller mosques in the city, it was built by Rustem Pasa in 1561 and is noted for the very fine tiles covering the interior and exterior walls.

It was the first mosque that we visited and because it was included in our Istanbul Eats tour. There was only a few people when we got there, so we got to enjoy the place in silence. The Iznic tiles were really impressive!

This is a beautiful small mosque near the bridge over the golden horn. It was very peaceful and quiet amongst the bustle of a local bazaar. It has an interesting history and is covered with beautiful blue tiles. Even the outside of the mosque has tiles.

Rustem Pasha was not, by all accounts, a pleasant man but the Mosque that was built in his honour is a little gem. Take the effort to search out the staircases to its terrace and marvel at the tiled interior which make it one of the most deorated in the City.

And, when I did finally see it I couldn't believe that I'd missed it as it stands out by being so high, just up from the River.

Lovely tiles and so peaceful.

We walked here from the Great Mosque on a Saturday - didn't see the warnings until later. It was great fun but if you are claustrophobic, try to see this Mosque on another day! It has a different layout to others and is much quieter and peaceful. The tiles are beautiful and when you come out, you can snack your way down the street stopping for pide, deli items and lacoum - and that is before you get to the spice bazaar!
