beautiful hand made iznik tiles of Rustempasha mosque
Rustem pasha mosque in Istanbul. This is a little mosque hidden among the busy shopping streets of Tahtakale/ Eminonu which is about five minutes walking distance from the Spice Market. Mosque is covered with beautiful and unique blue Iznik tiles from inside and outside in the courtyard. Mosque is decorated with about 60 thousand tile pieces in about 27 different designs. The tiles quality are even better than the tiles used in the blue mosque. When you enter this mosque you will see this mosque is more blue then the actual Blue mosque.
