The Kurşunlu Camii or Mosque with Lead (referring to the roof). Is was built by a member of the Carsancak lords that reigned 1151 / 1738, Osman Aga.
Inside is a minbar that comes from the Ulu Camii, and was supposedly a gift from Murat IV while on his Baghdad Campaign. It has Kufic writing and has very good woodcarving. I may have distorted (slightly) some of the pictures, that I had to take from awkward angles to avoid glare, later using perspective control to make them look more natural.
