Rustem Pasha Mosque, Istanbul

4.7
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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Istanbul trip simple and quick.

  • is a gem that many do not see, but its blue tiles are stunning!! very close to the Spice market, full of tourists but few go there, and it's a big mistake!

  • How much is modest on the outside appearance, it's so gorgeous. Schwarz is one of the masterpiece. 16. Lin adorned with İznik tiles, a very impressive Pearl.

  • The Rüstem Pasha Islamic cultural center was designed by Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan for the grand vizier Rüstem Pasha. He died at age 61 in July 1561 and the mosque was built after his death from around 1563
  • It was made for Rustem pasha which is located closer to spice market and new mosque. And it has the best tiles; better than Blue Mosque
  • CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS UNTIL 2019. Check out the Sokollu Mehmet Pasha Mosque instead for incredible tile work.
  • Rustem Pass is built by famous architect Mimar Sinan in 16 th century. Interior of mosque covered by famous iznik tiles especially tulip designed tiles perfect...
  • One of my favourite mosques - due to its tiles in and outside the entrances. Don't miss it.
