Places to Visit in Tahtakale

Rustem Pasa Mosque

This area is home to the Rustem Pasa Mosque , which sits at the heart of Tahtakale (the Wooden Castle), and the neighbourhood here has a maze of market streets that offers visitors a taste of the old Istanbul.

The Bazaar

The bazaar is geared for the local people rather than tourists and is one of the best places to buy hardware items, children’s toys and games, with some stores solely dedicated to selling things like knives and quilts. During December you will find on sale all manner of Western style Christmas decorations that are bought to celebrate the coming New Year (Yılbasi).

Tahtakale Hamam

The Tahtakale Hamam is close to the mosque and dates back to the 15th century; it now houses a lovely café along with a shop selling baskets made in different parts of Turkey .

Location

Tahtakale is located in Sirkeci in Fatih .

Getting to Tahtakale

You can take a tram to Eminonu and walk directly across the square beside the Spice Market ( Egyptian Bazaar ) or walk down the hill from Suleymaniye Mosque ; or walk along Mahmutpasa Yokuşu from the Grand Bazaar .
