Tumb of Ebu Eyyûb El-ensarî


We can take the Golden Horn boat from Eminonu twords Eyup visit Eyup Mosque, the boat ride is the beautiful and good way of seeing the golden horn. The Eyüp Sultan Mosque is the holiest site in Istanbul and one of the most sacred places in the Islamic world. The mosque was erected by Mehmet the Conqueror over the tomb of Halid bin Zeyd Ebu Eyyûb (known as Eyüp Sultan), the standard bearer for the Prophet Mohammed as well as the last survivor of his inner circle of trusted companions. Eyüp is a popular spot animated by the small bazaar nearby, crowds relaxing by the spray of the fountains, and little boys in blue and white satin celebrating their impending circumcisions. From here we can take the cable car to go up to Pierre Loti Hill. There is a cafe(tea house) which has an incredible view of Golden Horn, from Eyup to Eminonu.
