Tezkireci Osman Efendi Mosque

On the main Ortaköy–Bebek coast road, so easily reached by taxi or bus.

Most people whizz past this 18th-century, Tulip Period mosque in Kuruçeşme without a second glance. But behind it you can glimpse the old Ottoman village that once prospered here. Combine a visit with a little light Turkish delight shopping at Lokum, just along the road.
