Nusretiye or Victory Mosque Istanbul

Nusretiye or Victory Mosque Istanbul
Kirkor Balyan (1764-1831) the Turkish-Armenian architect was commissioned by Sultan Mahmud II to build this wonderful mosque in a style that is both baroque and imperial. It was named to commemorate the Sultan’s victory over the Janisseries in 1862 and was constructed between 1822 and 1826. The sultan’s pew inside has a screen that is so delicate it looks like lace.

The grand sebil next to the mosque in Tophane was actually moved here when the road was widened and it has a fine calligraphy inscription by Yesarizade Izzet Efendi.

Location of Nusretiye Mosque
