The Sultan Beyazit Camii was built under Beyazit II, son of Mehmet Fatih, the sultan that conquered Istanbul in 1453. It was built between 1501 and 1506 by Yakup Şah bin Sultan and is the oldest sultan’s mosque that remains from the classical Ottoman architecture. It shows the influence of the Haghia Sophia with its main dome rising between two flanking half-domes and its aisles without galleries.

Outside the garden holds several türbes (grave monuments), one of them is that of the grand vizier Koça Resit Paşa from 1857. Technically some buildings near the mosque are part of the complex also, like the book market and a nearby medrese (Koran school), now used for other purposes.
