Owner description: Noted for its interesting construction and exceptionally high dome, this mosque was built in 1557 for the daughter of a Sultan.

Inside design and decoration of this mosque is completely unique and not identical to any other mosques in Istanbul. Everything is colorful and well formed. Also, this mosque is not crowded and you can visit everyplace on ground floor. I liked that.

This exceptional mosque is one of the less known masterpieces of Sinan. It has a high dome and the walls are pierced with so many windows that the interior seems to be floating in light. An unforgettable experience.
The best way to reach this mosque is by taxi.

Peace and quiet is something all the mosque offer, a time just to be Grateful.The windows are breath taking and the history is far greater then most city's.

On a visit to Istanbul it is, perhaps, inevitable that you'll visit several mosques, large and small. This one has a tale behind it - an attraction between the architect and the Sultan's daughter to whom it is dedicated that led to a most beautiful building. Light and airy, the dome floats above the ground that leaves a wide open space beneath for worshippers. The only problem with this site is getting to it as it sits right by the Edirne Gate, so is not on any of the main tram or metro lines.

I have to preface this review by admitting that I love imperial mosques, and I don't think I'm capable of getting "mosqued out" as most people do. I was motivated to visit because I had read about Mihrimah, as well as the mosque and knew it was a bit different from most. Indeed, it is atypically light and bright, and has a delicate quality. Recently restored, it is a peaceful, place of respite. Had a very spiritual feeling for me.
