Unlike any other mosque in the city, Yeralti Camii is housed underground in a crypt belonging to what was once The Castle of Galata. Entry to the Golden Horn was controlled from here during Byzantine times, and it is thought that the giant chain which prevented unwanted ships from passing through the waterway used to be anchored here.

The building was converted into a mosque in 1757. Inside, there are a series of columns supporting low vaulted ceilings to allow for private prayer space. The tombs of two Arab soldiers are situated in a side chapel, enclosed inside a glass case.

Yeralti Camii is situated in Karakoy.
