Şehzade tombs

The Şehzade tombs are inside a walled garden. In particular the one for Şehzade Mehmet is outstanding. I never visited it earlier and was overwhelmed by the quality of its tiles, and overjoyed to see that many were in cuerda seca technique (Strolling through Istanbul indicates they are “almost the last and by far the most flowering of the middle period of Iznik tiles”). They were first manufactured at Iznik in about 1514, when Selim brought back a group of Persian craftsmen after his conquest of Tabriz, while the latest examples, in the lunettes of the windows of Kara Ahmet Paşa Camii, date from 1555.
I saw some other türbes which were closed, and ordinary graves.

I add these pictures to my Şehzade mosque gallery. Some captions have been written, some more later.
