Yuşa Mosque

Altınşehir, Beykoz, Istanbul

The Yuşa Mosque, located on the way to Yuşa Tepesi (Hill of Joshua) was built in 1755 by Yirmisekizzade Mehmed Said Pasha, briefly grand vizier, who brought to the post Georgian levity and French flair (his father had been ambassador to Paris), some of which can be seen in the mosque. It was damaged by fire in the 19th century, but faithfully restored by Abdülaziz in 1863.
