A Visit To Rustem Pasa Camii Mosque In Istanbul

Most mosques in Istanbul are monumental and it's easy to be impressed, just based on the size of the structures. Sometimes, nice mosques come in small packages. Wedged into the neighborhood surrounding Istanbul's Spice Bazaar, little Rustem Pasa Camii is a gem worth seeking out.

No big plaza as a teaser, the Rustem mosque sits among the small alleys and shops.

Heavily tiled exterior courtyard. And a pair of shoes. The ceiling.

The lovely interior. Maybe the lone pair of shoes belong to this gentleman?

A closer look at the rich interior details.
