Mihrimah Sultan Camii (Edirnekapı)

Date: 1565
Ordered by: Mihrimah Sultan, the oldest daughter of Süleyman the Magnificent; married to Damat Rüstem Paşa.
Location: On top of a hill near Edirnekapı (close to the Byzantine city walls).
Restoration(s): 1714 – 1894 .
Other name(s): Edirnekapı Camii.

For some reason I do not have pictures, partly because the mosque was being restored when we last met. I do recall its interior as being rather (at the time) dark and dull.

For a larger set of pictures check at the dedicated gallery.
