Yeni Valide Mosque Complex, Istanbul

4.8
Visit Yeni Valide Mosque Complex to see its square-shaped mosque built for Gülnuş Emetullah, the favorite concubine of Sultan Mehmet IV, and an unusual "birdcage" tomb in a quiet, lush garden. The building of the mosque features a flattened main dome and four half domes, as well as two minarets flanked with two balconies each. In the evening, the illumination imbues this tranquil place with a particular charm. There is a paid restroom in the garden, and a little cafe that faces the mosque offers refreshments. Remember to take off your shoes before you enter and cover your head if you are a woman.

  • This mosque is located near the entrance of the Spice Bazaar. She's in retirement, there are many sidings to your surroundings. I evaluated with 5 stars, because I already knew.

  • Here once again we went to Üsküdar and beach in the Yeni Valide mosque we already stopped by to visit briefly. Interested in offering this and here we are in the hands and arms of the health. Very nice and impressive. We need to navigate around such historical artifacts, they made for us and here we are seeing we both give it up and we need to know the values.

  • Not just history and architecture..its also one of the uniq mosque of Turkey. Because they still keep alive the double/synchronised adhan tradition between Mihrimah Sultan Mosque the one in front of it and Valide-i Jadid Mosque . you should take a rest and listen it to feel what i mean. ;)
  • Valide Mosque is amazing 18 th century Ottoman architecture mosque...
  • Very beautiful and surprisingly quiet
  • Historic mosque, great atmosphere. The adhan is read in synchronisation with the Mihrimah mosque nearby.
  • I appreciate this mosque so much. I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!
