This place holds great significance for Muslims as Eyup was an eminent historic figure and a friend of the Prophet. He is buried here and thus the name of the mosque. Pilgrims can pay respects at the tomb and pray in the mosque. Outside, you will find a lineup of busy restaurants and shops selling souvenirs. In Ramadan, the atmosphere... More

Eyup Sultan Mosque is not just another Ottamon mosque in a city filled with them. It is the premier Islamic pilgrimage site in the city, which makes this an interesting choice for people hoping to learn more about Istanbul's long and fascinating religious history. There are a number of religious buildings within the complex but the most significant are Eyup's... More

It was an old operational mosque with different architecture, but it was so crowded and people didn't treat me friendly because i did not have hijab, even they send me out of one of side shops.

We found the historical back story of how Abu Ayub Ansari RA (Eyup in Turkey) came to be buried here to be almost as interesting as the magnificient architecture of the mosque complex. Also to be recommended is the chair lift (over the hillside old cemetery) up to Pierrelotti where you can have enjoy some refreshments and a panoramic view... More

There is a view as many of the Sinan designed mosques as possible. It's an old place but worth seeing for sure.

Very impressive outside. Too bad we came after closing time, so we could not see the inside. The hill top location and fonicular descending added to the experience.

Whether you are a Muslim or not, you will be moved by the crowds praying in the shrine and queuing in front of the relics of Prophet Muhammad.

A visit to Eyup Sultan Mosque is a deeply spiritual experience. It reminds of the great sacrifice of this great companion of the Prophet - peace be upon him. Abu Eyup Ansari was a host of the Prophet and later he spent his life to introduce God to people. The mosque is big and clean. The only issue is that... More

For many years we used to limit our activities in the well known touristic places in Istanbul. We have been adviced to go Eyup Pasha area; which we finally did. In the center of this area located Eyup Pasha mosque. This is nicely decorated mosque with traditional ceramics and phrases from Holy Book- Quran. For lovers of Arabic Language- Istanbul... More
