Istanbul dec 2006 3526.jpg

view map

This is the Nişancı Mehmet Paşa mosque, according to the Strolling Through Istanbul guide NOT by Sinan, but some unknown architect. It dates from 1584-88 and was built for the Keeper of the Seal (Nişancı) Mehmet Paşa.

I came across it a couple of years back and when I am near always visit it, because it is a fine building, sitting in a nice garden in a curious neighbourhood.
