The Selimiye Camii or Mosque for Selim was built by architect Sinan for Sultan Selim II. The mosque is the pinnacle of classical Ottoman building. Sinan called the Princes’ (Şezade) Mosque in Istanbul his apprentice work, the Süleymaniye his journeyman’s work, and the Selimiye his masterpiece. He was 85 when he finished it. The central dome is supported by 8 columns on the corner of an octagon, that itself is embedded in a square basis (36 x 45 metres). Between the columns there is an alternation between semi-domes and supporting walls. The dome is 45 m. high and 31,5 m. in diameter. The minarets, each 80 m. high, each counting three balconies, increases the vertical impression of the building. In contrast, the courtyard with an arcade covered by 18 domes provides a horizontal impression. The Selimiye is the centre of a külliye, a complex with a covered bazaar at its foot, a medrese or Koran school and a hospital. If you like this mosque you may want to see a fine collection of Istanbul mosques, many by Sinan.
