Sacred Cloak or Hırka-ı Şerif Mosque

Sacred Cloak or Hırka-ı Şerif Mosque
Sacred Cloak or Hırka-ı Şerif Mosque was built by Sultan Abdulmecid I to house a cloak belonging to the Prophet Mohammed that had been given to Veysel Karani, a simple man who had been living in Yemen.  Sultan Ahmed I brought the cloak to Istanbul in 1611 where it originally sat alone in a single room but is now shown along with other sacred relics in the small building opposite the mosque.  The cloak itself is put on display from the first Friday of Ramadan until the end of the fasting period and a descendent of Karani still opens the door to visitors on that first day. 

This cloak should not be confused with the Holy Mantle (Hırka-ı Saadet) that is displayed at the Topkapi Palace .  The mosque itself has an elegant contemporary westernised style and was built in 1815.
