The Pertevniyal Valide Sultan Mosque, also known as the Aksaray Valide Mosque (Turkish: Pertevniyal Valide Sultan Camii, Aksaray Valide Sultan Camii), is an Ottoman imperial mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. It is located at the intersection of Ordu Street and Atatürk Boulevard in the Aksaray neighborhood. It is also located next to Pertevniyal High School (Turkish: Pertevniyal Lisesi) which was also built by the order of Sultana Pertevniyal in 1872. The mosque attracts 400-500 worshipers during prayer times and over 2,500 worshipers during prayer on Fridays.
The location of the mosque was regarded as highly important to the valide sultan and royal family, as Aksaray was a vital commercial center during the Ottoman period and an important district altogether. Not only was this region an effective area for commerce, but was also known for its overwhelming beauty, with plentiful gardens and orchards.

  • Very nice place, where you can pray and feel so many feelings, history and building is amazing Its very easy location, it's next of Aksaray Tram station
  • Beautiful exterior but couldn't find the way in. The entrance on the main road was closed and we had to rush off.
  • I prayed all my salat here, what an amazing mosque, calm, peaceful, beautiful and the imams always greet you after salat, I will miss it
  • Wonderful mosque, left in a dusty junction corner of crowded city transportation. City authority should work harder to save this historical site and develop its surrounding poor area
  • Big Masjed beautiful times to spend with deference peoples
