Istanbul has a rich mosque trail that fill up the major part of any itinerary. Located in the bustling market area of Eminonu, the Rustem Pasha Mosque was built between 1550-1561 by Rüstem Pasha, a Grand Vizier and son-in-law of sultan Süleyman the Magnificent. The fact that it was given a shape by Sinan, the great imperial architect who also built Suleiman’s Mosque nearby, makes it a definite attraction to visit during your trip to Istanbul. Of particular interest are its stunning Iznik (Nicea) tiles of the 16th century, that cover the entire walls, mihrab and mimbar areas. Do visit this museum for a spiritual as well as an artistic retreat.

Rustem Pasha Mosque, Istanbul Reviews - Write a Review
CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS UNTIL 2019. Check out the Sokollu Mehmet Pasha Mosque instead for incredible tile work.
Rustem Pass is built by famous architect Mimar Sinan in 16 th century. Interior of mosque covered by famous iznik tiles especially tulip designed tiles perfect...
One of my favourite mosques - due to its tiles in and outside the entrances. Don't miss it.
Unfortunately there is some restoration going on. But don't miss to visit the Masjid
Lovely Osmanli Masjid (Cami)
