Some of the mosques in Istanbul are recent, but there are many old ones built during the Ottoman period. For instance, the biggest mosque in the city is Süleymaniye Mosque from 16th century, and the most important one is Sultan Ahmet Mosque (known as Blue Mosque) from 17th century.

The New Mosque is one of Istanbul’s most prominent mosques, situated at the opening to the Golden Horn, close to the Galata Bridge and the Spice Bazaar. The name Yeni Camii (New Mosque) is rather misleading though, as the mosque actually dates back to the 1663. It is an imposing structure with a large open space in front, where birdseed sellers have created a healthy pigeon population (who enjoy a starring role in many New Mosque photos). It has a typically ornate interior, and was built as part of a complex that also contained a hospital, hamam, fountains and a market.
