Edirnekapi Istanbul

Edirnekapi Istanbul
Between here and Topkapi is the valley that was once the route of the Lycus river and where the walls were least defensible as the higher ground outside of here was an advantage to attackers. The famous Orban Cannon was trained on this part of the wall during a siege in 1453 and the reason for its bad state today.
Edirnekapı itself is a small suburb and the actual gate derived its name from modern Edirne as it was part of the route to get there and was still being used in Byzantine times.

Places to Visit in Edirnekapi

Mihrimah Sultan Mosque

The Mihrimah Sultan Mosque , ordered by Suleyman the Magnificent ’s favourite daughter Mihrimah, whose passion for architecture matched that of her husband Rustem Pasa, with both of them commissioning many of Mimar Sinan ’s early works. The mosque sits on one of the highest of the seven hills of Istanbul and dates from around the mid 16th century and from its raised platform it can be seen from all over the city.
