The caligraphy in the inscription - which the Strolling through Istanbul Guide mentions is intricate and of the highest quality - is probably by Ali Sofi, a man who also made the caligraphy over the Imperial Gate at Topkapı palace.

This is a digital enlargement of the previous one, I distorted the image slightly in cropping.

other sizes: small medium large original
