Zeyrek is part of the Fatih district of Istanbul. It overlooks the Golden Horn, and got its name from the mosque of Zeyrek.[1] It hosts also several Byzantine cisterns and the little Şeyh Süleyman Mosque, also of Byzantine origin. [2] It is a picturesque but poor neighborhood.

The center of Zeyrek is on the World Heritage list as part of the Historic Areas of Istanbul, the World Heritage site.
