·        Consequently, the mosque’s plan

evolved from a hypostyle plan with a

rectangular inner court (65 by 55

meters) surrounded by prayer halls

comprised of round columns carrying a

wooden roof (7 bays on the southwest;

3 bays on the southeast and northwest;

5 bays on the northeast), to a four-iwan

plan established/augmented in the

twelfth century after the additions of

the four iwans, the southern

(southwest) domed chamber, the two

minarets flanking it, and the northern

domed chamber. Especially noticeable

of all

the later reconstructions and additions

to the mosque is the double-story

arcade surrounding the court (added

around 1447), supplanting the original

one-story arcade and unifying the

elements of the court leading to the

various spaces of the mosque.

·         On the upper level of the bridge the main central aisle was utilized by horses and carts and the vaulted paths on either side by pedestrians. Octagonal pavilions in the center of the bridge on both the down and the upstream sides provide vantage points for the remarkable views. The lower level of the bridge may be accessed by pedestrians and remains a popular shady place for relaxing.

        main information :

·         The Nusretiye Mosque was

erected between 1823 and 1826 by

Mahmud II . In style, the mosque

signifies a transition from Ottoman

baroque to empire style. The mosque

was named Nusretiye or Victory, in

celebration of the sultan’s recent

abolition of the rebellious janissary

troops in favor of a new western-style

army — an event known in Ottoman

history as Vaka-i Hayriye or the

auspicious event.

Only the mosque, the clock tower and the Tophane kiosk have survived the mid 1950s urban renewal and

highway construction programs. The

mosque stands today having lost its

historical context and connection

with the water. It was restored

between 1955 and 1958, and again in

1980 and 1992.
