Day 1

After breakfast at the hotel we pick you up from your hotel by our coach and professional guide for exploring Islamic reliefs. Please mind your clothes, short and short dress are forbidden in the mosques, shoes are not allowed and ladies must cover hair by scarf.

Our first visit is Suleymaniye Mosque , is the largest mosque in Istanbul and was built between 1550-1557 AD by Mimar Sinan for Ottoman Sultan Suleyman I - "Sulyman the Magnificent “ who named as the richest and most powerful Sultan of the Ottoman Empire.

Inside the mosque you will be impressed by its size and also simplicity, tiles from Iznik and colored glass-work brings harmony to a place of prayer and silence. Four massive solid columns support the mosque, one from Baalbek, one from Alexandria and two others from old Byzantine Palaces. The paintings inside the mosque are dated from the 19th century and were recently renovated.

Rustempasa Mosque, was built between 1550-1561 by Rüstem Pasha, a Grand Vizier and son-in-law of sultan Süleyman the Magnificent. Mosque is especially famous for its very fine tiles, which almost cover the walls, not only on the interior but also on the façade of the porch.

Eyup Mosque is regarded as one of the main Muslim pilgrimage ranking only after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem. Mosque was built in 1458 by Mehmet the Conqueror and thus considered the first mosque constructed by the Ottoman Turks following the conquest of Constantinople in 1453 . At the same spot of the mosque , Ebu Eyyub EI-Ensari (HaIid Bin Zeyd) was buried . He was the one who welcomed prophet Muhammed to his home when the prophet was immigrating to Medina . Later , he joined the siege of Istanbul in the 7th century . He was killed during the siege and was buried, upon his will , on the outskirts of the city in 670 . The peace treaty after the Arab siege had conditioned that the tomb of Eyyub be preserved in its place. When Mehmet the Conqueror conquered Constantinople in 1453, he constructed the mosque upon Ebu Eyyub's tomb in 1458 . Being a sacred place, it is often visited by Muslims for performing prayers and seeking blessings.

We return back to your hotel and you can have your free time around street markets in Eminonu.
