This is a fine grave monument in the garden of the Ayazma Mosque, built 1760 by Sultan Mustafa III and dedicated to his mother. It is in a baroque style, and has some great ornaments that I did not hesitate to take pictures of. Also, it has several "houses" on its walls, meant for pigeons.

On the picture: The flower motifs indicate a woman’s grave.
Late-Ottoman ‘Turkish Rococo’ style, late 18th or early 19th century.
