Description

The Conqueror Mehmet ordered the building of the mosque next to the site where Eyup Sultan, the Islamic prophet Muhammad's standard bearer, was said to have been buried. Before an earthquake destroyed it in 1766, the original mosque was the coronation site for Ottoman princes. The reconstructed mosque on the same site today is a popular place for Muslim boys to visit on T-day.
