Selimiye Mosque - A Detail
Selimiye Mosque - A Detail
One of the finest works of the great Ottoman architect Sinan (c. 1497-1588) to be found outside Ýstanbul, the Selimiye Camii, was built between 1569 and 1575 on a piece of land that slopes gently downwards to the town center. Sinan himself is said to have thought the Selimiye Camii his masterpiece, outstripping in beauty even the more famous Süleymaniye Camii in Ýstanbul. Today the mosque is the focal point of a quarter in Edirne than could hardly be more historic. (Location: Edirne)
