  • Beautiful traditional mosque from 1464 and is one of the oldest mosques in Istanbul. The mosque is also known as imamul masajideen, as in the leader of the mosques since it was the closest mosque to Mecca in Istanbul.
  • Akbıyik Mosque, located between the railway and the coast in Barnkapi and one of the oldest mosques in Istanbul, was built in 1464 by Akbıyik Muhyiddin Efendi, one of the statesmen of the Fatih period. The mosque, which was devastated over time, was rebuilt during the reign of Sultan Abdulhamid and was finally restored in 1950 as a result of the support of the Monuments Association and the public. Today, there is no trace of the first structure of the mosque. Even the tombstones of Muhyiddin Efendi, who bears the date H. 814 on a broken footstone, have also been removed from the ground in recent years. It is named "Imam'l-Masâcid" (Leader of the Masjids) because it is located at the most advanced point in istanbul mosques according to the mosque. Akbıyik neighborhood continued until 1934 and after this date it joined the Sultanahmet neighborhood. The tomb of Bani Muhyiddin Effendi is also here. The mosque has a rectangular plan and has a wooden roof and an interior area of 192 square meters. The wall thickness is 90 cm. and the minaret with a single honor still retains its old trunk and cheers. The pulpit was later put in place. In its first construction, it is noted that it was built as a mosque, not for any other purpose. There are two lodgings built for the residence of the mosque officials, Sadirvan, Men's WC, Mrs. WC Gasilhane, Depo, Akbıyik Mosque, which is the office of the official, two officials: an Imam-Hatip and a Muezzin. In the time prayers, there are 250 congregations in 30 Friday prayers on average.
