It is a must if you are visiting İstanbul. Spectacular İznik ceramics are covering the walls of the mosque as well as miniature but outstanding architecture. Stanning!

Visitors often overlook this spectacular but small mosque next to the Spice Market. Don't be among them. The inside walls are dramatically sheathed in colorful 16th-century tiles.

This mosque was recommended to us by several locals, so we went to visit, expecting something special. Well, it is anything but special, nor interesting. It's just an ordinary underwhelming mosque with no uniqueness whatsoever.

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
