"Yeni Mosque or Mosque of the Valide Sultan" Yeni Camii - New Mosque Tip by June.b

Yeni Camii - New Mosque, Istanbul: 38 reviews and 119 photos

Yeni means New, so let's call it New Mosque.

Situated in Eminonu, so when you get off from Eminonu station, you could take the underpass to emerge on the big plaza or square of the Yeni Camii. But since I was staying in Sirkeci, I walked, exploring the neighborhood of this huge mosque that looks like a new version of the Blue Mosque in Sultanahmet.

The mosque along with the Galata Bridge is one of Istanbul's most photograph sight, for obvious reasons - if you're in a ferry, the approach to the ferry port is a beautiful sight of both of these.

Built in 1597 on a decree from the wife of the Ottoman Sultan Murad III.

Yeni Camii is just beside the Egyptian or Spice Bazaar.

Address: Eminonu
Directions: Eminonu, southern end of Galata Bridge

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
