Mimar Mehmet Ağa Sokak, Sultanahmet

Named for Sedefkâr Mehmet Ağa, the great architect who designed Istanbul‘s Blue Mosque (Mosque of Sultan Ahmet I), this street snakes past the Mimar’s (Architect’s) masterpiece and downhill into the little streets of Sultanahmet‘s hotel district.

Hotels, restaurants, a newsstand/bookshop, grocery stores and (of course) lots of carpet shops fill its sides.

At the very bottom of the street where it meets Amiral Tafdil Sokak is a cluster of five Ottoman-style inns. Hotels on the upper part of the street, nearer to the Blue Mosque, are noisier (see map below).
