Eyup Sultan Mosque Istanbul

Eyup Sultan Mosque Istanbul
This is the most important mosque in Eyup as the remains of Ebu Eyüp el-Ensari are buried in a tomb here that date back to 1458. Damaged by an earthquake in 1766 the mosque was rebuilt by Sultan Selim III in 1800 and Sultan Ahmed III added the minarets.

To enter the mosque you go through a double
 courtyard surrounded by plane trees that storks and grey herons once nested in and now have hundreds of pigeons that are fed daily by the many pilgrims and visitors to the mosque. There is a stepped corridor that leads to a pew that was once used by the sultans’ and today is reserved for women worshippers.
Inside, the honey coloured walls accentuate the huge chandelier that hangs over a sea of turquoise carpet.


The only survivor of the mosque’s complex is the recently restored hamam as the school and soup kitchen were demolished to make way for Eyup Square.
