Built by Sultan Mahmut II between 1823 and 1826, this ornate mosque, although architecturally influenced by Islamic elements, retains a clear Baroque style. The front of the mosque is enveloped by a sultan’s lodge, and the base of the minaret shaft – mirrored by a baroque weight turret to its side – is bulbous.
Located in Karaköy, you can still make out the cypress trees of the Karacaahmet Cemetery from the mosque.
