Rustem Pasa Camii
I have visited this mosque on each trip to Istanbul and often many times.
I remember the first time, when Jim and I tired to find the entrance.
As this tiny mosque, is hidden amongst the shops and street vendors of the Egyptian Bazaar.
It is in fact above them you enter, if you can find it through the street stalls and up the stairs you come to a courtyard. There the noise, the crowd, the chaos of the Bazaar disappears.
The mosque is special. It s completely tiled floor to ceiling. The tiles are quiet extraordinary they represent the finest period of Iznik tile production.
