  • It was a great experience to visited Sehzade Mehmet Mosque. Beautiful place with peaceful environment. Highly recommended.  more »
  • Eminönünde bulunan bakımli ve tarih kokan bir cami. Eminönü is toursitic and historical region and when you visit Grand Bazaar, do not forget to visit Sehzde Mehmet Mosque. Not far from Grand Bazaar.  more »

  • Come and listen to the imam with golden voice reciting quranic verses. This mosque is comparable to Blue Mosque, Soleiman. Deep in history, byzantine architecture and amazing central dome and ceiling lights.
  • Sublime, understated grandeur. This mosque is a quieter, less tourist-infested version of the Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque. I was very moved by its intricate, ornate interior, and its grand marbled walls.
