Yeni Valide Mosque Complex, Istanbul

(4.8/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Yeni Valide Mosque Complex and other attractions to your Istanbul trip itinerary using our Istanbul vacation route planner.
