Fatih Mosque and Complex, Istanbul

4.8
Fatih Mosque and Complex serves as a solid example of Turkish-Islamic architecture that led to the development of the classic Turkish style. Dating back to 1463, the mosque went through a course of destructions and repairs caused by earthquakes. It was finally rebuilt in 1771, featuring both ancient and Baroque elements. Tour the complex that once housed a school, library, and a hospital and visit the 26 m (85 ft) tall mosque with a 26 m (85 ft) diameter dome. Look for the cemetery in the yard, which preserves the tomb of Sultan Mehmet II and his wife. Don't miss seeing the caravanserai at the site--a recreated traditional inn for dervishes.

  • One of the larger mosques in Istanbul, Fatih is known more for its neighborhood and Wednesday market than the mosque itself. It does not have many characteristic Iznik tiles and is relatively new, but is still breathtaking. The mihrab and stained glass windows are particularly nice.

  • Beautiful surroundings.. Walking distance to the Spice Bazaar and tram station
