This area lies outside the historical peninsula and the city walls. In this area, we see many mosques, mausoleums, graveyards, fountains, as well as old imarets-eateries-for poor people. Being outside the city walls the area has long been used as a major Muslim shrine. Today Muslims from all over world pay visit to this holy place. Our tour begins with a visit to the Mosque of Eyub al Ansari - the standard bearer of Prophet Muhammed – and continues to the Mausoleum of Sokullu Mehmet Paşa, a Grand Vizier of Selim II-of Bosnian origin, the Mosque of Zal Mahmut Paşa-the son in law of Sultan Selim II., the Mausoleum of Sultan Reşat, the Tekke (Convent) of the Kalenderi Sect. These are only some of the places we will visit. Our tour will then continue through the Eyup Cemetery and end on Pierre Loti Hill.

The best place to feel the antiquities are city walls. Our stroll through history begins in Yedikule Fortress - Dungeons where manydiplomats were imprisoned when the Ottoman Empire declared war on that country. Not only diplomats - but some Ottoman sultans were also put in jail and executed in some of the dungeons here! What else? We see the Gates of the walls, the cemetery of the Orthodox Patriarchs and the miraculous Ayazma of Balikli, some Works of Architect Sinan, and more churches. Highlight of the tour is the opportunity to walk on the historic walls. First, we walk on the walls in the Yedikule Fortress, than we walk over a kilometer from Belgrate Gate to Silivri Gate - This will definitely keep your feet on the ground.
