Sokullu Mehmet Paşa Mosque


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​This historical mosque from the Ottoman era is located in the Büyükçekmece district of İstanbul. It is also known by the name "Sokullu Mescidi" (Sokullu Mosque).

The construction of Sokullu Mosque was contracted to Mimar Sinan (Sinan the Architect) by Sokullu Mehmet Pasha. The wooden area for the congregation was changed over the years with later additions.

The most significant feature of the mosque is its minaret, of which there is only one duplicate. The minaret, which was structured from monolithic stone, has a similar counterpart in Egypt. While Kurşunlu Inn is located just across the mosque, Kanuni Sultan Süleyman Fountain is right beside it. All three of these structures are positioned in the touristic area at the head of Kanuni Sultan Süleyman Bridge.
