While visiting Istanbul, I visited the historical mosque in Fatih and also the Wednesday market. The mosque itself is an astounding piece of Ottoman architecture located in a serene area away from the bustling, noisy streets. Not many people know that the tomb of Sultan Mehmet, the great conqueror. is also here at Fatih mosque. I was also lucky to visit the Wednesday market. Things are cheap but the many vendors do not speak English. So bringing a phrase book of common Turkish phrases or a Turkish speaking friend would be a great help. I was so inspired by this area that I wrote a blog about Fatih at lifeinFatih.blogspot.com.
If you are ever in Fatih, visit this area to experience the more Islamic side of Istanbul. To my knowledge, New Fatih Hotel and Berr Hotel are the nearest hotels in this area.
