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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Istanbul itinerary 7 days.

Wonderful mosque.. awe inspiring art work in this place.. lighted by beautiful design one of peaceful and pleasant mosques at istanbul
Lovely Mosque with great interior. Was built long time ago. This time could not go inside due to renovations / restoration.
CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS UNTIL 2019. Visit the Sokollu Mehmet Pasha Mosque instead for incredibly beautiful tile work (The one near Küçük Ayasofya, not the one on the other side of the Galata Bridge). That mosque also has 4 small pieces of the Black Stone from Kaaba.
Went here yesterday. Was waste of time. Only got to see carpet and boarded up walls lol. Had no idea that renovations being done. Seems like its being done to lot of mosques at same time
No thing to see from inside at the current moment. Renovation is taking place.
