Sehzade Mehmet Mosque, Istanbul

4.8
Admire the 16th-century Ottoman imperial design of Sehzade Mehmet Mosque, built as a memorial to the son of a sultan. As you enter the site, you'll first tour the outer courtyard with a fountain. Continue inside and look up to view a ceiling with five domes, each beautifully decorated in typical Turkish symmetrical patterns. Wear conservative clothing when you visit, and be sure to take a walk around the peaceful gardens surrounding the building.

  • The Zazad Mosque is located near the Valence Waterway, a 10-minute walk from Vezneciler Station, a city full of visitors, so you can get more to visit this mosque.

  • I don't think it's worth going especially to this mosque, but if you're close you can pass and right on the corner there's a green stone column that is said to be the center of old Istanbul.

  • 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.
