Firuz Aga Mosque Istanbul

Firuz Aga Mosque Istanbul
This small and lovely mosque is close to the Sultanahmet tram stop and is one of the city’s oldest dating back to 1491 when Firuz Ağa was the Chief Treasurer to Beyazid II and who commissioned the construction of the building.

The pre-classical design has a single minaret and triple arched portico similar to those built in Bursa .

A little further on from the mosque is a small park that has remains of palaces belonging to Antiochus and Lausus, two Byzantine noblemen.  
The park is also the burial place of the Christian martyr, St. Euphemia of Chalcedon, who was murdered for her faith in 300 AD and has a monument of Mehmed Akif Ersoy (1873-1936) who wrote the Turkish national anthem , Istiklal Marsi (Independence March).
