Shalom, Shalom.
Try contacting a friend of mine, RhineRoll (Winfried), who is also restricted to a wheelchair. I do not think he has visited Turkey, but he may have sources of information that can help.
Tell him Martin sent you and don't forget to say hi from me.

Travel Tips for Istanbul

Kulliyye, mosque complexes

by Aitana

Külliyye is a complex of buildings around a mosque that provide different social services to the community. Hospitals, schools, madrasas, baths, mausoleum, trade and craft centres are usually part of the Kulliyye. All of them compound a whole architectural unit. The administration of the külliyye used to depend on the officers of Topkapi Palace.
Good examples of kulliyye in Istanbul are around the mosques of Suleymaniye, Sultan Ahmed, Fatih or Yeni. The majority of külliyyes was constructed and designed by Architect Sinan, the master architect of the Ottoman Empire for fifty years in the sixteenth century. Most külliyye were located at important points of the city, preferably on hills and sloped lands. The structure emphasizes the religious centre of the mosque.

The Muslim Festival, Bayram

by goga4444

We arrived just in time for Muslim Festival .
The custom is that every family has to buy ( unless if you are very poor , than you don't have to ) and "sacrifice " a sheep , 1/3 of the meat they leave at home, 1/3 they give to the friends , and 1/3 goes to the poor . If you are poor you can keep all sheep , if you are rich you can give everything to the poor .
On pic people buying sheeps ...Pic was taken through the bus window ...that is why is so bad :))

In Spring 1907, the youth of Kadikoy sown the seeds of the sparkling successes by establishing FENERBAHCE Club.

Winning its first championship in 1911, FENERBAHCE is not only the honour of its Turkish fans, bu the success stories are also spread throughout the world.

To be a FENERBAHCE fan means to be previleged... SINCE 1907.

Goztepe rose garden.

by Tdiver

Unseen i should think by any tourists.Best from June.
Dolmus from Taksim (in the road next to the Ataturk Kultur Merkezi)passes the park and only costs 5 Ytl or $4 one way.Ask for Goztepe or Sahil and takes usually 15-20 mins.

Great Glass

by WulfstanTraveller about Pasabahce Magazalari

Pasabahce is Turkey's leading glass manufacturer and is based in Istanbul. It makes everything from inexpensive daily glass for the home, hotel, or restaurant, to extremely expensive, high-end products. Frequently, one one drinks out of a glass, be it for tea, raki, etc., at an establishment in Turkey, it may say Pasabahce on the bottom. It exports products both inexpensive and expensive and one can find a great variety of wonderful things here.

There are several outlets, but the best one for tourists is on Istiklal Caddesi, in Beyoglu. Glass products are the bulk of products, but there are other, related home items. It depends, but it will be cheaper than the same stuff costs in the US or elsewhere.
