Built in 1491 by Firuz Ağa, who was Chief Treasurer in the reign of Sultan Beyazit II. It is one of the few examples in Istanbul of the “pre-classical” period, that is, of those built before 1500. It is the style that flourished mainly in Bursa when it was the capital of the Ottoman Empire (from Strolling through Istanbul; Redhouse).
