Gazi Atikali Paşa Mosque

The Gazi Atikali Paşa Mosque is one of those mosques I have been visiting almost from the first time I came to Istanbul. So I was surprised to find I did not have a gallery with its pictures. In December 2015 I finally took measures. The mosque is one of the oldest in town, being built in 1496 by the Hadım (Eunuch) Atik Ali Paşa who was a Grand Vezir of Sultan Beyazit II. The complex has been larger, but was partly destroyed when the main road nearby was constructed. However, the mosque still sits in a quiet courtyard. It differs from similar mosques in that the central rectangular space consists of a large room covered with a dome, and a continuation where, in the East, the mihrab is situated. The first space has to either side two rooms with smaller domes. The stalactite pendentives are well proportioned and fine.
You may notice some pictures have floor covers outside, some have not: the first were taken on a Friday shortly before prayer, the others later (when the mosque was again open to visitors). I went there one night to just enjoy the space, and met the friendly imam. Greetings, I hope you like the pictures.
