Ismail Aga Mosque Istanbul

Ismail Aga Mosque Istanbul
Ismail Aga Mosque was built in 1724 with a design that was supposed to bring to mind the Kaaba in Mecca although its space is rather more cramped.  The complex still has its school (sibyan mektabi) and medrese (seminary) which has since been converted into a school for the Koran.  The mosque was named after Ismail Efendi (1645-1725) who became the Şeyhülislam (Minister of Islamic Affairs).
