Fatih Mosque and Complex, Istanbul

(400+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
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.
