4.6/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
Perched on a hill and overlooking the harbor, Yeni Cami features two minarets plus 66 domes and semi-domes arranged in a pyramid. The building is also known as the "Queen Mothers' Mosque," since one queen mother commissioned it in 1597, and another completed it in 1663. Walk over a large courtyard past an ornamental ablution fountain to reach the entrance. Blue, green, and white tiles decorate the interior of the mosque, along with gold leaf and carved marble. Notice a gilded screen in the northeast corner of the gallery, behind which sultans attended services. Six sultans are buried in the adjacent mausoleum. If there's time, stop by the spice bazaar nearby. Make Yeni Cami part of your personalized Istanbul itinerary using our Istanbul itinerary builder.

  • Currently undergoing renovation work is Yenicamii gelinipte is one of the must-see places in İstanbul. The most famous one, Helede stairs is to take a picture together with pigeons. In fact, drinking fountain, the courtyard of the mosque and a must see with the architectural structure. Please don't leave without a visit to Istanbul without paying. Good hike

  • 離博斯普魯斯海峽非常近的清真寺 名為耶尼新清真寺 裡面的牆壁鑲嵌畫以及天花板上的裝飾可比美藍色清真寺 土航導遊說這座清真寺是他在伊斯坦堡最愛的一座 
  • This is very typical shape of mosque that I saw in my life. Not only this and other Turkish mosque also noce looking. I did not catch here so many things. If I knew more things about muslim the I could understand more. I just glimpse here and tooknsome photos here and all.
  • This mosque is beautiful, and often overlooked due to the proximity of Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Check it out.
  • Here's open for any tourists to see how they pray in a prayer time. Don't forget to respect their religion by follow the rules for tourists. I have no chance to see how they pray before, even my country also have many mosques. So I was impress here additional an inside beautiful designed.
  • This was 4th mosque today and by far top to bottom beautiful. Hoping Istanbul and community get behind its restoration as many tiles appear hidden beneath a concrete wash. Magnificent tile work in ceiling, on columns, alcoves, etc. I liked the brass hand-tooled rings around the support column rings. Ideally a great start on a journey up the streets to other more famous mosques.
  • Very inspiring place, people from all around Istanbul gather here in the mosque backyard in holidays and eat, you can feel the happiness.
