  • Beautiful and modern mosque, imposing with it's wonderful dome and the blue lights on it by night. Not good seen from the street, but yes when you enter the cemetery that surrounds it. It pays a visit, very nice building.
  • There are more than 3 thousand mosques in Istanbul. Only a few deserves to be seen. The rest is just bad replicas of Architect Sinan's style. Şakirin becomes prominant with its modern touch on classical sunni architecture.
  • An unusual modern design for a peaceful mosque located in the middle of a peaceful cemetery in the heart of Üsküdar! Recommended for visiting!
  • One of the most beatiful modern mosques in Istanbul
  • The impressive architecture of this mosque is extremely impressive.
