About Us


As young university students, we became captivated by the fact that our world is a globe of diversity. Luckily for us, Istanbul is a microcosm of the world in terms of the abundance in diversity. Unfortunately, we also noticed that—for visitors to our country—most of the services on offer to get to know Istanbul better are expensive. We were convinced of the need for a free service to introduce our city, culture and people to visitors. 


With this realization, as well as the inspiring encouragement of one of our lecturers, we found ourselves in the Blue Mosque in 2018. Meeting people from all over the world did not require much effort. We started volunteering at the Blue Mosque as a group of students, in collaboration with The Blue Mosque Association, the Faculty of Theology at Marmara University, and the Presidency of Religious Affairs. Our group expanded as we were joined by other volunteers enthusiastic about meeting visitors to Turkey and The Blue Mosque. Our experience in the Blue Mosque taught us that mosques are one of Turkey’s chief attractions for visitors looking to soak up the Turkish atmosphere. Our community is now ready to welcome visitors to Istanbul's other treasured mosques.




In The Blue Mosque Information Centre, we give our visitors an enlightening presentation on the mosque, the importance of mosques for Muslims, and the kind of mindset that brings Muslims together in a mosque. We also provide information about Islam in general. Another thing we like to do is share insider tips about Istanbul and Turkey. Our volunteers are also in charge of explaining the requirements for visiting a Muslim place of worship. And if any further support is needed, we are always happy to help. 

We welcome questions of all kinds, and we do our best to provide the most comprehensive answer possible. 

All guests are offered free literature and pamphlets on the Blue Mosque and Islam, as well as beverages and snacks. 

And now we’re delighted to be able to offer the same services to visitors at not only the Blue Mosque, but at other Istanbul mosques as well.

All the services we have listed so far are also available on our website through the online chat function, apart from beverages and snacks, of course!




Our aim is to break down barriers between societies with an Islamic background and their visitors. Our hope is that the people we meet will end up developing an appreciation of our way of life, culture and friendship. We want to live in a world where we know each other better and explore more.
