Hadim Ibrahim Pasa Cami, Istanbul

4.6
The Hadim Ibrahim Pasha Mosque is a 16th-century Ottoman mosque located in the Silivrikapi neighborhood of Istanbul, Turkey.HistoryThe Hadim Ibrahim Pasha Mosque was designed by Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan for the vizier Hadim (Eunuch) Ibrahim Pasha. The building was completed in 1551.ArchitectureThe mosque is in the form of a domed cube with an attached portico. The main dome has a diameter of 12m and is supported by eight internal buttresses. There are three tiers of windows. The five small domes of the portico are supported by arches with marble columns. The stone minaret, on the southwest end of the portico, was rebuilt in 1763-64. The mosque is similar in design to the earlier Bali Pasha Mosque in the Yenibahçe district of Istanbul which was completed in 1504-05.The mosque is decorated with a number of panels in coloured Iznik tiles. Under the portico on the north façade are three lunette panels and two roundels. The underglaze painted tiled panels have white thuluth lettering reserved on a dark cobalt blue background. Between the letters are flowers in purple and turquoise. Above the mihrab is a larger lunette panel painted in cobalt blue, turquoise and dark olive green. The purple colouring is characteristic of the 'Damascus' style of Iznik pottery but is unusual on tiles. The panels help establish the chronology of the different styles adopted by the Iznik potters.

  • It is a mosque with excellent architecture. No need for inner echo {sound echoes} so that; Today, there is still no microphone & speaker system in the mosque, and the coolness of the architect Sinan's work. There is no other architect in our history that he will give more and more beautiful works. The great master is one of these works at the Hstep2 Ibrahim Pasha Mosque which is located in the Silivrikapı Cambazhane neighborhood of Mimar Sinan and extends along Silivrikapi Street. In 1551, the mosque, built by Ibrahim Pasha, such as "eunuch" named after the vizier of Suleiman the Magnificent, was originally constructed around a complex. From the complex buildings in a large outer courtyard, today the marble and open-top Ibrahim Pasha tomb, the mosque to the left of the mosque and some parts of the school and the pointed arch fountain is left behind, along with the Camii. Ibrahim Pasha, who showed a lot of time to the time of the Azan, was just a home for this job, he put the hourglass in it, and a person who moved these clocks with special reels kept them at home. When the time comes to Azan, the muezzin is notified by hitting the sewn poles and the azan is ensured to be read in time. There are three entrance doors, built with cutting stones surrounding the mosque. The following inscription is found in the case of an intricate leth on the left door that opens to Silivrikapi Street: Made Ibrahim Pasha this Mualla mosque I am a real Five time in the continent. In the morning of the hair The Cadwell Dai said the date of the push E was izazile this temple honor in the Eyyamda. When we go through the courtyard door, we see the repaired octagonal, marble pillar. The minaret of the mosque was destroyed in 1648 and 1753 earthquakes, and the walls were cracked and repaired in 1763-1764 with the mosque. 1933 and 193...

  • The mosque is right across from the wall gate. There is a lot of traffic because of the constant vehicle crossing the wall. On the side of Silivrikapi Street there is a remnant of the old building in the mosque's garden. There is a Byzantine column heading outside the fountain in front of the mosque: Seven Commandments on the street and inside 2 fountains/Lalezar Mosque Street/Bala Tekkesi Street/Tekke Maslağı Street/Karagöz Mehmet Pasha Mosque/Öksüzce mosque street.

  • The interior was simply and beautifully restored, but the tomb part was not so much of it, but it took its place as a spiritual peaceful mosque.

  • As a lady, I couldn't find a place to go to Friday prayers. I've been in here. They'd set aside a little place for only two ladies to get cold. Security has been very helpful. When the mosque's teacher finished Friday, the situation was dissgrunling in the cigkogte. Even though I was out, they turned me in and offered me a treat. The mosque is looking good. His teacher is beautiful in the sermon of no one. It gives the impression that you're someone who tries to live with Islamic morality. It's beautiful in the writing on the mosque's teeth. So you understand that there is a mentality that tries to get people closer to love, to God, not like I'm going to get paid to do my job. Whoever it is, God bless you.
