According to legend, even birds don't land on the dome and minaret and don't dirty the mosque out of respect forto the spectacular work of Sinan. Therefore it is called Kuşkonmaz Mosque (literally, birds don't land.

It is not true actually..Because I remember seeing birds landing on it.
But however, it is a beautiful mosque and a beautiful location..
There used to be a small park next to it and I spent many nights there with my friends, drinking raki or wine (sometimes both of them ) until the morning and watching Maiden's Tower...
