This is the Şehzade Mehmet türbesi and it could (can?) not be visited. That was the case at the time the Strolling trhough Istanbul guide was first written, tens of years ago so I hgave little hope of ever getting in, but who knows?

The dome is double on a fluted circular drum and is itself fluted. I am afraid the wall you see kept me out thoroughly.
