Sehzade Mehmet Mosque is another great mosque in Istanbul. We visited several mosques during our stay and this one rates as one of the better ones and more noteworthy. Very historical and quite beautiful.

This mosque is "off the beaten path"; less visitors. We were welcomed by an usher who took all the time to explain things and answer the questions we had. The inside is beautiful, the tiles!! The grounds are nice for a peaceful stroll.

Designed by prolific Ottoman architect, Sinan, to commemorate the untimely death of Suleyman the Magnificent's young prince, Mehmet, this mosque is quiet, compact but beautifully proportioned. Fewer visitors than the more high profile Blue Mosque and Suleymaniye Mosque, it has a calm and contemplative atmosphere.

Sehzade Mehmet Mosque is close to Sulaymania mosque but with a mor simple design although parts of the interior was designed by Rustem Pasha with underglazed Iznik tiles.
