The Şemsi Pasha Mosque is an Ottoman mosque located in the large and densely populated district of Üsküdar, in Istanbul, Turkey.HistoryThe Şemsi Pasha Mosque was designed by Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan for Grand Vizier Şemsi Pasha. The Mosque is one of the smallest to be commissioned by a Grand Vizier in Constantinople, however it is its miniature dimensions combined with its picturesque waterfront location which have made it one of the most attractive mosques in the city. The Mosque is a celebrated example of the chief architect's skill in organically blending architecture with the natural landscape.

  • 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.

  • Love the view from this mosque, it's right by the sea and close to maiden's tower.
  • A neat little mosque
  • Semsi Pasa mosque built by Architect Mimar Sinan...
  • Nice
  • Asparagus mosque. Master Architect Sinan. Upon its release in piles on the beach in Üsküdar editing Camimizde due to subsidence and cracks. Mimar Sinan's bones are sore. Ceddimize strive to take charge and we don't respect. The walls, shrines, fountains, Mosque, old houses and other historic part of neglected and much of will is devastated by azımsanmı, some old streets are becoming places of garbage collection. Boğazımızda garbage floats. All of these situations, your State and transferring the necessary authorities, diligence I believe showing up.

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
