Amcazade Huseyin Pasa Mosque Istanbul

Amcazade Huseyin Pasa Mosque Istanbul
This pretty mosque can be found on the junction of Eski Saraçhane Street and is part of a complex that has a medrese, mescit, library, fountain and sebil (water dispenser) and was mainly used as a lecture theatre for the medrese.  It was built by Sultan Mustafa II for his Grand Vizier, Hüseyin Paşa, between 1697 and 1702.  Hüseyin Paşa was a relative of one of Istanbul’s wealthiest and eminent families, the Köprülüs, who owned what is now the oldest surviving waterside mansion (yalı) on the Bosphorus that now houses the Museum of Turkish Construction. 

The Dülgerzade Mosque is nearby on Fevzi Çakmak Road although it is not particularly interesting.  Also nearby, on Horhor Road, and set within a small park, are the remains of the huge Church of Hagios Polyeuktos that was built for Anikla Juliana, the daughter of Emperor Anikius Olybrius who reigned from 430 to 472.  Parts of columns and capitals can be found strewn around and are believed to have come from the church.

Close by are some fine examples of First National Architecture that have been recently restored and were built for the Fatih Municipality (Belediye) and the Fire Brigade (Itfaiye) and were both designed in 1914 by Kostantinos Kiriakidis.  In front of these is the Air Force Martyrs Monument designed in 1916 by architect Vedat Tek.
