History of The Fatih Mosque and Complex

The Fatih Mosque and Complex was built from Fatih Sultan Mehmet by the architect Atik Sinan in 1463-1470. Following the demise of Byzantium, Fatih underwent large-scale reconstruction and embellishment activities, and building this complex was part of that effort. It was also built on one of the seven hills of İstanbul , which was a very significant place during the Byzantine Period. One of the most splendid parts of the complex is the tomb where the internal decorations contain inlaid siver and gold patterning. Contained in a cemetery behind the mihrab wall are the tombs of Fatih Mehmet Sultan and the sultana (his wife) Gülbahar.
