“Rated low ONLY because the site was closed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

The Muradiye complex of mosque and the tombs of the first three Ottoman sultans is impressive from the outside. I enjoyed walking the perimeter, but was sorry to find that possible landscaping work had closed the mosque and tombs, without any helpful signage. Check before you go out to Muradiye.

“Take a taxi to get there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

If you don't have a car, take a taxi to get there if you are travelling as a group, it's much cheaper than going by bus. The tombs, especially are gorgeous. Sehzade Mustafa and Cem Sultan tombs are the best ones (lots of decoration inside and these are historically very important people) but unfortunately they are usually locked (you can't walk inside), probably because of the value of decoration, they don't want crowded groups harm them. But if you see a group going in, don't be shy, just walk in with them. Sometimes they open these tombs for special groups and other people outside the group are allowed to go in as well. Don't miss the chance if you see the doors open.
