"Mihrimah Sultan Camii of Uskudar" Uskudar District Tip by WulfstanTraveller

Uskudar District, Istanbul: 13 reviews and 40 photos

In the central market area of Uskudar (the old part of the Asian side of Istanbul) near the waterfront and the Uskudar ferryboat terminal is the Mihrimah Sultan Camii complex. It was designed by Mimar Sinan and built in the 1540s. Like some mosques, it is raised up, requiring one to walk up steps to its courtyard, since it is in the centre of what has for centuries been a densely packed, busy area.

Address: Pasalimani, Uskudar, Istanbul
Directions: It is the closest mosque to the Uskudar ferryboat area and is quite easy to see. From Eminonu, take the ferry to Uskudar and it will be right there, beyond the fountain of Ahmet III.
