Rustem Pasha Mosque, Istanbul

4.6
Rustem Pasha Mosque showcases exquisite works of Ottoman art and architecture. Known foremost for the stunning Iznik tiles that create floral and geometric patterns across the porch, walls, and columns throughout the building, the mosque has been the source of the popularity of Iznik pottery. The chandeliers help to light up the spectacular art, carvings, and carpets that furnish this spiritual place. As a tourist, you may not visit the mosque during prayer time (during or around sunset and sunrise), and it is considered impolite to visit during group prayers or sermons. You must wear modest clothing and remove shoes before you enter. Ask your accommodation about how to get to the mosque and for prayer schedules. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Istanbul trip simple and quick.

  • Walking through Eminonu, after delighting in the Species Bazaar, we decided to look for this gem lost there. A small door among a thousand unidentified commercial premises.... inside staircase with scaffolding (it's amazing how they maintain this city and its multiple charms!!!) ... we decided to go up. The surprise was incredible when a security guard greets us with a long phrase in Turkish, beckoning to wait a moment. Improvise a "good morning". I take his cell phone and in perfect Spanish appeared the translation: "Excuse me, mosque closed for refaction until next year." It is amazing the respect and care of the tourist in this city. We'll definitely have to come back!!!!
