Firuz Aga Mosque 1491

view map

Built in 1491 by Firuz Ağa, who was Chief Treasurer in the reign of Sultan Beyazit II. It is one of the few examples in Istanbul of the “pre-classical” period, that is, of those built before 1500. It is the style that flourished mainly in Bursa when it was the capital of the Ottoman Empire (from Strolling through Istanbul; Redhouse).
