Mihrimah Sultan Mosques

Mosques in Istanbul

Known as İskele Mosque, Mihrimah Sultan Mosque at Üsküdar and Mihrimah Sultan Mosque at Edirnekapı is built by Mimar Sinan for the daughter of Suleiman the Magnificent and Hurrem Sultan.

According to a legend, Mimar Sinan was in love with Mihrimah Sultan and he eternalized his love with a masterpiece.  As Mihrimah means sun and moon in Persian,while sun is setting at Mihrimah Sultan Mosque at Edirnekapı, the moon rises at Mihrimah Sultan Mosque at Üsküdar.

This still remains as a legend, but you should visit to see the magnificent moments when moon sees sun off.
