Hirka-i Şerif Camii

This mosque was being restored in 2015. It looked like a major operation. It is the Hirka-i Şerif camii, the Mosque of the Holy Mantle, built in 1851 by Sultan Abdül Mecit to house the second of the two mantles of the Prophet which are kept in Istanbul. It is in Empire-style. When hopfully I visit it after restoration I’ll add some more information and pictures.
