From 1580 this is a Sinan (greatest architect of Turkey) mosque, built for Ali Pasha, an Italian from Calabria who became a Moslem and got a high post in the navy. A very nice mosque near the Tophane.

These are by far the BEST pictures of Turkey we have seen. We are planning to visit this may and are using YOUR pictures as a 'virtual guide'. We thank you so much for the amazing presentation and photography you have done.
