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.

Rüstem Pasha Mosque always enchants me with its most beautiful tiles and carved woodwork (doors).
Don't miss this mosque, you don't need to see all the big ones - but this one, really I mean it, go there for a quiet, beautiful, enriching visit.
To get there: take the right turn inside spice bazaar and just follow the narrow street through the souk, until you see the minaret on the right! (Actually it is also very near to "La Maison d'Alep" which is just around the corner - read my review for it here on TripAdvisor, too)

When you fint this mosque it is fantastic: The whole mosque is decorated with blue Iznik tiles. This mosque is really blue!

this is the finest collection of Iznik tiles. When these tiles were designed and fabricated, they were the highest quality in the world. A wonderful variety and combinations which can be viewed both up close and as an ensemble.

Beautiful little mosque, tucked away but very easily accessible. Right next to the spice bazaar, near the New Mosque. Quiet as less known about I guess. Stunning colours, lovely souvenirs for sale at very reasonable prices. Recommended for all. Free entry.

Very difficult to find as all entrances are withing the area of Bazaar and not really visible. However, once found, you enter into small but very charming mosque, pretty and calm.
