Takkeci Ibrahim Ağa Camii

I have this tendency to always wander a bit further than I intended. So when going to see the layout of the Topkapı metro station I first stumbled upon the Kültür Parkı and then found that I could, from the set of pavilions about Turkish countries, continue to a mosque I’d never seen before. That proved to be the Takkeci Ibrahim Ağa Camii, and was the delight of that day. It is mentioned in Strolling Through Istanbul as “the only wooden mosque in Istanbul that appears to preserve essentially its original appearance. It is rectangular in form with a wooden roof and porch.” It is then described how this is cheap, but liable to destruction by fire. Other mosques have suffered this fate, this one, being away from the city, escaped unscathed. It was founded in 1592 by a maker of felt hats called take or arikiye, especially the long conical kind worn by the dervishes.
The mosque’s tiles are described, rightly I feel, as being from the greatest period of Iznik. Unfortunately the light was such I could not take their picture to the extent I wanted. However, this was compensated for by some shots of the woodwork with fine painting, and of the general setting. Then there was a service, I left after I took a picture of the imam calling for prayer (now from within the mosque, using a microphone).
