Designed by Mimar Sinan, one of the most celebrated architects of the 16th century, this imposing yet elegant structure ranks among the finest achievements of Ottoman architecture. Built for Suleyman the Magnificent's favorite daughter, the mosque complex once included a school, Turkish baths, tombs, and several shops.

  • The Fatih Mihrimah (not to be confused with the Mihrimah of Üsküdar on the Asian side) is due, like so many other traditional mosques, the genius of Sinan. But here, he worked under the harmony of the structure as light, relegating well far European research in this field. The building is accessible by tram, located right behind the gate of Edirne (line), not far from the Museum "St Sauveur in Chora". A must see!

  • Amazingly beautiful mosque that is in a interesting location. The area seems a bit rough but it's safe. I think this mosque was built, this area was the outskirts of Istanbul. Hence the big historical border wall next to the mosque.
  • A Token of Love by Mimar Sinan, the design itself is very womanly
  • Beautiful mosque. I visited in last 10 days of Ramadan. Unlike other mosques, they do the khatm (ختم) in taraweeh and also tahajud. They also had 2-3 imams with beautiful recitation.
  • This mosq is just amazing!
  • quite place with the most beautiful area in Istanbul
