"A passage to Orient.." Istanbul Favorite Tip by Erkmen

Istanbul General: 533 reviews and 651 photos

  In front of Yeni Cami..
by Erkmen

Favorite thing: When you are in Istanbul, you can spot some places which look quiet orient. and Yeni camii "New Mosque" is one of those places..

Just in front of the Eminonu pier, you can see the Yeni camii, the birds in front of the mosque and people feeding them.. Tourists looking way to the Spice Market and street vendors are trying to catch a good location.

Below picture was taken on 17may 2003, early in the morning.. So less people around..

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
