Fuat Pasha türbesi

The tomb of Sadraazam (Prime Minister) and Minister of Foreign Affairs Fuat Pasha (1814-1868)under Sultan Abdülaziz.

In addition the Wikipedia has on him: "Fuad Pasha was a “Europeanized” man who was fluent in French and was able to negotiate on the same level as his European counterparts. He became the first secretary of the Turkish embassy in London in 1840. During 1848 he was employed on special missions in the principalities and at St. Petersburg; and in 1851, he was sent to Egypt as a special commissioner. In that year he became minister for foreign affairs, a post to which he was reappointed on four subsequent occasions and which he held at the time of his death. During the Crimean War he commanded the troops on the Greek frontier and distinguished himself by his bravery. He was the Turkish delegate at the Treaty of Paris in 1856; was charged with a mission to Syria in 1860; served as grand vizier two times and minister of war. He accompanied the sultan Abdülaziz on his journey to Egypt and Europe."
