Çinili Cami or Tiled Mosque, a mosque with great Iznik tiles, built at the beginning of the reign of Ibrahim the Mad in 1640. It was built by Valide Mahpeyker Kösem, mother of Murad IV and of Ibrahim the Mad. The tiled are a bit late but of very fine quality. Unfortunately I had to cope- when taking pictures of the tiles - with some glare (often a problem) and use high ISO’s (some noise).
