Sokollu Mehmet Pasha Beyoğlu

The Sokollu Mehmed Pasha Mosque (Turkish: Sokollu Mehmet Paşa Camii) is a 16th-century Ottoman mosque located in Istanbul, Turkey. The mosque is situated in Azapkapı neighborhood of Beyoğlu district in Istanbul. It is directly beside the Atatürk Bridge across the Golden Horn, but there was no bridge here at the time the mosque was built. It was designed by Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan (c. 1488/1490-1588) and built for the grand vizier Sokollu Mehmed Pasha (in office 1565–1579) in 1578. It is one of the three mosques with the same name built by Mimar Sinan in Istanbul. One of them is in ruins, another is a marvel that I have visited before the guard prevented any picture taking for years.

For years I have longed to take pictures (I must have some scans of very old slides I took during a first visit somewhere), but restoration prevented me from visiting. In 2018 I finally found it restored and open. The guard kindly allowed me to take pictures, after minutes I was met by a fellow photographer, which led to a nice conversation about equipment. He lent me an 11 mm lens I’d never seen, that enabled me to take three pictures of a wider angle than my 14-24 mm. I’m thankful for that. I contemplated buying it, but for several reasons went for the 8-15 mm.

Near the mosque there is a famous baroque fountain, the Azap Kapı Fountain
