Admire the vibrant colors and intricate tile work at Cinili Mosque. This tiny mosque was built in 1640 as part of a bigger architectural complex that featured a madrassa (college), primary school, public fountain, and hamam, still in use. The Iznik tiles adorning the interior floors and walls were commissioned by the powerful wife of Ahmed I, Kosem Sultan. Notice the delicately carved wooden doors. Not many tourists find their way to this hidden gem on the Asian side of the Bosphorus, so you can easily enjoy it all by yourself.

A small mosque infrequently visited by tourists but filled nearly ceiling to floor with mesmerizing blue Iznik tiles. Is known as the Tiled Mosque for the sheer quantity and quality of them present both inside and outside. Worth a quick detour if on the Asian side. The entrance is a bit tricky to find, but is right off the street.
Nice little mosque located in the heart of Üsküdar !
