  • Here once again we came to party and wander along the coast of Üsküdar. Şemsi Pasha Mosque and of course us Külliyesine our way right. Citizens fishing hooks around the mosque through a walk through. This is a very nice and well kept after refresh. Right on the beach and have a great advantage in terms of transportation at the Center. When you stroll around here have come by and look at it.

  • On the shores of the Bosphorus in Istanbul is one of the more beautiful and quaint mosques. Views and location super nice. Refurbished its very good. Have a wander around the walkway around the front side, where usually every hour of the day, you can see our citizens fishing with a fishing rod. When you go down to the coast Üsküdar sides surely I would recommend that you see in this mosque.

  • It is a mosque right next to the pier where ferries arrive. It is small but beautiful. And it is one of the many that exist in the crowded neighborhood of Üsküdar, a densely populated area. The mosque was designed by Ottoman architect requested by an imperial character. The mosque is small but picturesque primarily because it is located facing the sea and is very attractive by combining architecture with the natural landscape.
