Mihrimah Sultan Camii, Istanbul

4.8
One of Istanbul's prominent landmarks, Mihrimah Sultan Camii stands on the peak of one of the city's seven hills. 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. Step inside to admire the mosque's huge dome supported by four arches, and pay close attention to the building's three rows of windows, providing abundant light and infusing the interior with a bright atmosphere.

  • I can feel very good while I'm in this beautiful mosque because of his interesting story
  • It is a very beautiful mosque. I think it is one of the most elegant buildings that Sinan constructed and it influenced following mosque architecture in many ways. On top of that it is quite and peacefull away from the hustle and bustle of Blue Mosque and some others
