Mustafa I türbesi

From the official Hagia site: "The structure at the southwest of Hagia Sophia, which is called as Tomb of Sultan Mustafa I and Sultan İbrahim is the Baptistery section which is one of the most important annexes. The structure has 4 corners externally, while having an octagonal layout internally. It is covered by a dome having no pulleys. It had been used for storing lamp oils of Hagia Sophia after conquest; afterwards it had been transformed into a tomb when Sultan Mustafa I died suddenly in 1639, where Sultan Ibrahim who died in 1648 was buried here as well. There are 19 sarcophaguses in total in the tomb, where Sultan Mustafa I, Sultan Ibrahim, daughters of Sultan Ahmed I, Kaya Sultan who was the daughter of Sultan Murad IV, princes and daughters of Sultan Ahmed II as well as some other courtiers are buried here."
