Trip Planner:   Europe  /  Turkey  /  Istanbul  /  Sightseeing  /  Rustem Pasha Mosque

Rustem Pasha Mosque, Istanbul

(4.7/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Rustem Pasha Mosque on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Istanbul tour planner.

  • 態度不佳的警衛說禁止進入,正在維修,可以禱告但禁止參訪。入口難找,需要經過香料市場,裡面的男推銷員令人相當不舒服!迎面而來就是hey are you looking for me?或者Come here Jackie chan,非常噁心,要不是想要參觀這美麗的清真寺,我絕對不會想來這種地方。結果也沒開,失望透頂!  more »

  • The best place to put the entrance from getting all over the place under construction but have struggled to find. You know, at least tell your friends by displaying any where.
