Sehzade Mehmet Mosque, Istanbul

4.8
Admire the 16th-century Ottoman imperial design of Sehzade Mehmet Mosque, built as a memorial to the son of a sultan. As you enter the site, you'll first tour the outer courtyard with a fountain. Continue inside and look up to view a ceiling with five domes, each beautifully decorated in typical Turkish symmetrical patterns. Wear conservative clothing when you visit, and be sure to take a walk around the peaceful gardens surrounding the building.

  • Come and listen to the imam with golden voice reciting quranic verses. This mosque is comparable to Blue Mosque, Soleiman. Deep in history, byzantine architecture and amazing central dome and ceiling lights.
  • Sublime, understated grandeur. This mosque is a quieter, less tourist-infested version of the Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque. I was very moved by its intricate, ornate interior, and its grand marbled walls.
  • This is the mosque that I enjoyed the most. You can feel that people come here to pray and it isn't filled by tourists. It's peaceful and quiet.
  • Definitely worth a visit, especially in Ramadan. This Imam had the best recitation I heard during my stay in Turkey.
  • I walked in it's garden and listened ezan. It was beautiful.
