"Yeni Valide Camii" Yeni Camii - New Mosque Tip by WulfstanTraveller

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

The Yeni Valide Camii in Uskudar was built by the mother of Sultan Ahmet III in the early 18th century. It's basically in the classical style that was defined by Mimar Sinan in the 16th centuiry, but it is a much newer mosque.

Directions: Uskudar on the Asian side of Istanbul. It is in the central Uskudar commercial area near the Uskudar ferryboat landing (iskele) but it's further from the ferry terminal than the older Mihrimah Sultan Camii.
