Cihangir Mosque Istanbul

Cihangir Mosque Istanbul
The Cihangir district took its name from this mosque that sits high up on a hill and overlooks the Bosphorus and is one of Mimar Sinan ’s designs. It was built in the 16th century to commemorate Suleyman the Magnificent son, Cihangir, who in 1553 died of grief after his half-brother Mustafa had been murdered by order of their father.

Today’s building was reconstructed by Abdulhamid II in 1874 after the original building burnt down and although it resembles the work of the famous architects, the Balyan brothers, they were not responsible for this one. The mihrab inside has clouds painted on it that gives an impression of a stage set in a theatre.
