Eyup Sultan Mosque Tours

It was built for the memory of Eyup Sultan who is the standard-bearer of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, in 1458 by 3 architects: Mimar Sinan, Uzun Huseyin Efendi, and Fatih Sultan Mehmet, who was also a conqueror and architect. So the mosque, with all its spiritual significance, is also a Sultan's work. The mosque, which has all Turkish architectural features, is the place where the sultan's belt sword ceremony (a ceremony like the coronation ceremony in Europe) was held for centuries. The tradition started during the reign of Yildirim Beyazit, the great grandfather of Mehmet the Conqueror. Later, Fatih Sultan Mehmet was the first sultan to gird his sword in Eyup Sultan Mosque from Akshamsaddin, a scholar and poet.

Today, Eyup Sultan Mosque is a holy place, and the eternal resting place of Turkish intellectuals and well-known personalities, such as intellectual Besir Fuad, poet Ahmet Hasim, and statesman Sokullu Mehmet Pasha.
