Mihrimah Sultan Camii


Dominating Istanbul’s Sixth Hill, the Mihrimah Sultan Mosque was designed by Sinan for Suleymein’s daughter Mihrimah and completed in 1565. A victim of earthqaukes, the latest in 1999, it has been restored several times. Behind the mosque a ruined türbe by Sinan houses the graves of Mihrimah’s son-in-law, Grand Vizier Semiz Ali Pasha and other family members. She herself is buried in the Süleymaniye Mosque.
