"Fatih Camii - Conqueror's Mosque Within" Fatih Camii - Conquerors' Mosque Tip by mrclay2000

  interior domes, Fatih Camii
by mrclay2000

Mosques are accessible only between the daily prayers. Even so, the imperial mosque complexes (with the exception of Sultanahmet, or the Blue Mosque) are often vacant between the muezzins' call. Odds are you'll have Suleimaniye and Fatih all to yourself.

I found the Fatih Camii interior joyously decorated in a light style, though certain guidebooks have spurned it as cold or unimaginative.

Address: Fevzipasa Caddesi
