Bayezid Mosque

The Bayezid Mosque (Turkish: Bayezid Camii) is a mosque located in Bayezid Square in Constantinople. The mosque, which was built in 1505, is close to the Forum of Theodosius.

History[]

Built by the Ottoman Sultan Bayezid II, the mosque was smaller compared to the Hagia Sophia to the east. It featured various unique features not found on other mosques of the period, most notably the enclosed peristyle outfront and it's ornate column and tranquil courtyard.[1]

The mosque was damaged in 1766 during a massive earthquake, and extensive renovations were required to restore the earlier structure. Today, it stands in Constantinople as the oldest and best example of early Ottoman architecture in the city.[1]
