  • 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.

  • Never before have I paid no attention, that mosques are beautiful stained-glass Windows. Was ecstatic! It turns out that they vtsrechajutsja not only in Christian churches. The old mosque, a small and very harmoniously flowing in the urban landscape. It is situated on the Asian side of Istanbul. Tourists almost never come into it, as many watch only European often of the ancient city.
