Selimiye Mosque
Selimiye Mosque
Selimiye Mosque was built between 1569 and 1575 by Mimar Sirýan for Sultan Selim II, and Mimar Sinan described it as his masterpiece. It has four minarets, each with three balconies, and these graceful minarets set at each corner around the central dome are visible from a great distance outside the city.
The 31.5 metre diameter dome rests on eight pillars set back against the walls, so creating an unbroken soaring central space. The eloquent unity of the interior, visible in entirety at a glance, is remarkable. The clear silhouette of the exterior is dominated by the dome.
An intricately carved marble þadýrvan stands in the cloistered courtyard.
