“In my view, the nicest mosque in Istanbul”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Depsite our guidebook being a little critical we thought this was one of the loveliest mosques we saw. Located just in front of the Spice Bazaar and showcasing some gorgeous tile patterns this is definitely worth visiting. It's also more peaceful than some of the other mosques in the historic centre.

“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This Mosque is not the best in the city, however it is for sure worth a visit. It is free, it is also right in front of the Spice Bazar, so why not?
The patium is the most beautiful aspect of this landmark, for my taste of corse.
It is perfect to combine in a tour around the historical center. You can fastly enter, and visit, and it is defenitily worth it.

“A welcome retreat”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This mosque is located in a massively busy area of town. We walked by and rode by this site numerous time while in town. The crowds outside were intimidating but once inside you felt so secluded. We sat and enjoyed the mosque for well over an hour. It was a weekend afternoon and we were two of about 50-60 visitors. The cross breeze was lovely and the street noises was definitely muffled. It was such a relaxing visit and I loved our visit here.

“Beautiful mosque”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I much prefered Yeni Camii to the Blue Mosque, it was quiet and very atmospheric with few visitors. The Blue Mosque was lovely but heaving with folk and noisy.

“The old New Mosque...”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Built on the port area of old Byzantine, the New Mosque actually is like a main gate towards the historical part of Istanbul.
Its silhouette welcomes you in the traditional way with its great main entrance high gates ornated tastefully.
There are so many old and new Istanbul photos with the background of the New Mosque, as one of the symbols of the city. Also, it's a great place for photographers who likes to shoot history and there are so many great angles to take wonderful instants, not only the building but the crowd, as well.
