Yavuz Sultan Mosque and visitors



 istanbul

The Yavuz Selim Mosque is the second oldest existent imperial mosque in Istanbul. It was completed in 1522, although an inscription in Arabic over the entrance portal indicates that it may have been in use a couple of years earlier. The architect is unknown. Numerous attempts have been made to associate the structure with the famous imperial architect Mimar Sinan, but there is no supporting documentary evidence, and the date of the mosque is too old. However, one of the turbe in the garden of the mosque is a work of Sinan
