Ottoman Quarters Tour
Mosques ( cami ) in Istanbul are built thickly into the city, varying in size from block to block. A few of them are reconditioned Byzantine Churches, the most well known being Aya Sophia (Hagia Sophia). There is always a mosque a few steps away from you in Istanbul.
They are as numerous as fountains, and most of them are passed over by the majority of people. Most of the mosques are very old and there are many nice mosaics inside and the beautiful Iznik tiles.
