Rustem Pasha Mosque showcases exquisite works of Ottoman art and architecture. Known foremost for the stunning Iznik tiles that create floral and geometric patterns across the porch, walls, and columns throughout the building, the mosque has been the source of the popularity of Iznik pottery. The chandeliers help to light up the spectacular art, carvings, and carpets that furnish this spiritual place. As a tourist, you may not visit the mosque during prayer time (during or around sunset and sunrise), and it is considered impolite to visit during group prayers or sermons. You must wear modest clothing and remove shoes before you enter. Ask your accommodation about how to get to the mosque and for prayer schedules. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Istanbul trip simple and quick.

一昨年、ここを訪れた際、修復工事が始まっていたために入れませんでしたが、今年になってもまだ春の時点では終わっていないようです。素晴らしい装飾タイルをもう一度見たいと思っています。入口は金角湾沿いの商店街の一画です。モスク周辺にはいろいろなお店があって、そちらを見ながら時間を過ごせます。 more »When I visited here the year before last, I did not put it because the restoration work had begun, but it seems not to be finished at the time of spring still in the current season. I want to see a wonderful decorative tile again. The entrance is a corner of the shopping street along the Golden Horn Bay. There are various shops around the mosque, so you can spend time watching them.
Great place to visit. Namaz timing is at 1 pm, hence visitors are not allowed between 12:15 pm to 2 pm. Just plan accordingly
A wonderful architectural mosque started by an in-law and senior counsellor of Sultan Suleyman, Rustem Pasha, and which was only completed after his death by his wife and daughter of Sultan Suleyman, princess Mihrimah Suleyman. Its location in Eminonu overseeing a lot of the touristic sites around, is equally beautiful.
