Uc Serefeli Mosque and Sokullu Pasa Hamam in Edirne

Uc Serefeli Mosque and Sokullu Pasa Hamam in Edirne

Uc Serefeli Mosque

The Uc Serefeli Mosque replaced Edirne’s Friday mosque in 1447, took 10 years to build and is a typical Ottoman monument. At that time its dome was revolutionary showing the succession between early Ottoman and classic architectural periods.
 The name “three balconied” refers to its unusual minaret with three minaret balconies that are reached by separate stairways inside each minaret. The innovative courtyard, centred on a ritual ablutions fountain (sadırvan), is surrounded by porphyry and marble columns stolen from Roman buildings. The interior, more wide than deep, has a dome of 24m in diameter, the largest that Turks had built at that time and its sense of space relies on just two freestanding columns with four others recessed into the front and back walls forming a hexagon.

Sokullu Pasa Hamam

Opposite the mosque is the Sokullu Pasa Hamam. Built by Mimar Sinan for Grand Vizier Sokollu Mehmet Paşa in the 16th century this atmospheric hamam has separate sections for men and women.
