Rüstem Pasha Mosque

Eminönü is one of the most famous districts of Fatih district with its interesting spiritual-cultural sightseeing and shopping opportunities. Many places in Istanbul that are recommended to be seen, such as the Spice Bazaar and the New Mosque, are located here. Rüstem Pasha Mosque, which is a few hundred meters away on foot from the Spice Bazaar, is one of the prominent historical values.

The mosque, which rises among the busy warehouses and shops, is another work of Mimar Sinan in the city. It was built by Rüstem Pasha, who was the grand vizier of the Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. The mosque stands out with its striking decorations and beautiful Iznik tiles. Abstract shapes and floral motifs can be enjoyed all around the mosque, whose dome is supported by four filaments, or giant columns. Rüstem Pasha Mosque, which has a kind of a riot of colors, is also known for its tiles on the mezzanines. Suffice to say this sophisticated building is among the mosques with the most beautiful tiles in Istanbul.

The lighting components are another interesting element. It can be stated that the windows are opened wherever possible and a bright interior is provided with this aspect. The historical value on Hasırcılar Street, which is open to worship, can be visited within certain hours every day.
