  • So many hilaya Shari's. Love the variation of the calligraphy.
  • This is a very nice museum of prayer beeds. Even the museum building is a well taken care of historic one. It was built and used as a school at the time of Great Ottoman Empire, same as thousands within the empire. As expected in any school, there are more than a dozen of small classrooms within the building and each room has many different kinds of prayer beeds on display, and are made from precious stones. All are hand crafted and are very beautiful. It's about 25mins of walking distance from Eminonu Port are. Another great thing about thid place is there is no entrance fee, for the time being.

  • Nice museum free entry
  • Great little museum in a well restored Madrasah. The collection of Islamic religious art is quite impressive. The collection is made up of Hilye-i Şerif, which are poetic descriptions of Muhammed in artistic form, and Tesbih, which are prayer beads
  • awesome place lots to learn
