Haci Evhad Mosque by Sinan

The Hacı Evhad Mosque (1585) at Yedikule is one of Sinan's smaller works. It is rectangular in shape and formerly had a timber roof. It is obvious that at one time the walls of this small mosque were covered with enameled tiles, its minaret is large in proportion to the building itself. All of these tiles have been stolen because the building remained in a semi-ruined state for many years. If it is borne in mind that mosques of this type had domes set in the ceiling that were not visible from the outside, and that these domes were richly embellished with painted designs and gold leaf, it can assumed that this mosque too, possessed an inset dome of this type.

When I visited there was a Koran reading going on, I waited for it to end and saw a fierce battle being fought with water-guns by the kids of mothers who attended the reading. Later I took some pictures inside.
