Rustem Pasha Mosque

Rustem Pasha Mosque: Grand Vizier’s Mosque

Rustem Pasha Mosque is located within the heart of the historical peninsula of Istanbul and built by Architect Sinan in 1561. If you go to the Eminonu you will see the Rustem Pasha Mosque just in front of the Galata Bridge and the ferry stops by the Golden Horn. This mosque is not one of the biggest mosques in Istanbul but it has its own unique properties that make it worth sparing some time and visiting.
