Türbe (Mausoleum) of Sultan Abdül Hamit I

The Türbe (Mausoleum) of Sultan Abdül Hamit I (reigned 1774-1789). Buried with him is his son, the mad Sultan Mustafa IV, who was the second imperial lunatic to bear the name Mustafa, who was responsible for the murder of his son Selim III and nearly executed in bringing about the execution of his younger brother, Mahmut II. Mustafa was eventually deposed on 28-7-1808 and was himself executed three months later.

I liked the spot because it has a quiet little garden, well, graveyard, in an otherwise busy part of town, full of cats. In the mausoleum there is a showcase with, according to the notice, footprints of the prophet Muhammad. They are not mentioned in Strolling Through Istanbul, the book from which I have the other information here presented.
