Suddenly, Rather Overrated Grand Bazaar and Underrated Nuruosmaniye Mosque

Well, it’s supposed to be a GRAND Bazaar..

It’s Grand in its size and history, but I couldn’t find anything interesting here, nothing anything authentic at all.

But people visit here anyways knowing all that as it’s the famous Grand Bazaar.

Personally, I won’t visit this place again even though I were to be right next to it.

So I’d suggest to visit Nuruosmaniye Mosque right near, or stop by at one of the Turkish Bath places nearby while you’re at it.

Nuruosmaniye Mosque, Nuruosmaniye Camii, is a fine example of Ottoman Baroque style Mosque completed in 1755 with Baroque architectural elements.

Meaning “The Light of Osman”, the Mosque deploys many windows letting lights inside the hall, which lacks a overly decorated elements seen in other Mosques, creating the very clean and clear contrast.

Especially Grand Bazaar nearby doesn’t have much to show in my opinion, try stopping by this interesting and different Mosque instead would be quite enjoyable.
And, DON’T SIT ON THE STAIRS.
