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.
