Mihrimah Sultan Camii, Istanbul

4.8
One of Istanbul's prominent landmarks, Mihrimah Sultan Camii stands on the peak of one of the city's seven hills. Designed by Mimar Sinan, one of the most celebrated architects of the 16th century, this imposing yet elegant structure ranks among the finest achievements of Ottoman architecture. Built for Suleyman the Magnificent's favorite daughter, the mosque complex once included a school, Turkish baths, tombs, and several shops. Step inside to admire the mosque's huge dome supported by four arches, and pay close attention to the building's three rows of windows, providing abundant light and infusing the interior with a bright atmosphere.

  • We were here quite by accident, but not at all regretted. The beautiful light Mosque with its peculiar architecture gave the opportunity to relax and enjoy the silence...

  • You will be in the center of Üsküdar, the ferry or the bus, you will be right in front of me, my point when I go to Üsküdar in Istanbul. The mosque, which is the masterpiece of Mimar Sinan, is a unique masterpiece. Spirituality is enormous, you must come and taste it.
