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.

  • The mosque has its charm. You won't hit the crowds of tourists. We encountered a gentle approach even though it is a much conservative part of Istanbul

  • This Fertif Mosque is a short distance from the old town, but a well-behaved mosque. There are not many tourists, and the impression that local believers are coming to worship. Funerals are held on the site. The inside of the mosque is very large and big, and it is beautiful. The area of Fatif itself had a downtown atmosphere rather than a tourist destination, and it was close to the mosque, and the blue sky market came out and it was crowded with shoppers.
