The porch of the Lala Mustafa Paşa Camii (built in 1562) is also the ‘son cemaat yeri’ (= ‘area for those who came late’), where worshippers who reached the mosque late or at the last moment, will gather and fulfil their prayer duty.
In the background of the picture: the Yakutiye Medresesi, which lies to the West of this mosque.
