After the construction of the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, the Nurosmaniye mosque was the first imperial mosque to be built in 100 years.

A beautiful 18th century European baroque style mosque, with many stain glass windows. Quiet and serene, a peaceful break from the hustle and bustle of the grand bazaar right next door.
