Bayezid Mosque

Beyazit Mosque, Istanbul Overview

Bayezid Mosque or Beyazit Mosque is a 16th-century Ottoman selatin mosque located in Beyazit Square close to the Forum of Theodosius’ ruins. It is one of the most famous mosques in Istanbul. The mosque's interior is replicated after one of the most famous mosques in Istanbul, the Hagia Sophia.

It was constructed between 1500 and 1505 and exhibits early Ottoman and Byzantine architectural styles. Yakubşah Bin Sultan is the chief architect who built this magnificent complex, with the central dome measuring up to 16.78m in diameter and surrounded by four pillars. Some of the earlier buildings of the complex serve different functions in the present day; the former kitchens are used by the State Library, and the former madrassa became the Municipal Library. There are beautiful gardens behind the complex, home to the tombs of Sultan Beyazit II and his daughter, along with an array of shops. The mosque is within a 4-minute walking distance from the Grand Bazaar.
