    For the tram you will need to buy tokens (works out at 30p i think) - theres normally a small shop nearby selling them.

    For the grave visit you will need to get a taxi - Just ask for ayub jaami. Theres loads of sahabi (R.A) buried in istanbul, this page had got a jpeg with address and names

    http://www.deenislam.co.uk/gallery/turkey/turkey.html - the most i got done in one go was 10, but thats when i went with mates years ago. the other couple times i just did the main tourist attraction one.

    Useful info there. And the link with pics is great. I think I should be sorted for a great experience :insha: Now I'm just wondering about how I will get to Nabi Yusha (as) grave. I heard that even by taxi it's an hour to two hours drive and most cabbies don't know the way there.

        Asalamu alaikum greetings from Istanbul, got here earlier this week. It's really very beautiful and the Turkish people are also very friendly. I've only got a few days left here and I've done soooo much walking that my legs are about to drop off and my feet are swollen.Last few things to see and a few things to See tommorow before I head back.

        Just thought i should add to the initial thread and thank all those that contributed for their information.

        Salam from your brother.

          Asking once again:

          Can anyone give me good directions on how to get to Nabi Yusha (as) grave from Sultan Ahmet District? Or any other good directions to there?

            Nabi Yusha (as) grave quite far from Sultan Ahmet. Because it is opposite side of Europe part. So you need to pass this part by bus or ferry. I recommend to use ferry from ''Eminonu'' to ''Uskudar''. Than u should use bus which is going to ''Beykoz''. ( should ask someone!) When u arrive Beykoz you need to get a taxi to find easily. it sounds long destination, to be honest it is :) but its cheaper than... and also u can see the city more. Just leave home early :) Otherwise If u get a taxi directly from SultanAhmed u need to pay a lot. Its up to you!

            InsaAllah you ll have a nice holiday!
