Expert review of Rüstem Paşa Mosque
It’s not famous Ottoman architect Sinan’s Istanbul masterpiece – that would be the newly renovated Sülemaniye Mosque, also well worth a visit – but this tiny 16th century mosque is one of the city’s most beautiful. Both the façade and the interior are covered with floral and patterned tiles in a riot of colours. The tucked-away location above the shops of Eminönü (the entrance is on street level, and can be a bit tricky to find) also gives the mosque a unique feeling.
