Nusretiye Mosque, Istanbul: 5 reviews and 13 photos
Commissioned in 1823 by Sultan Mahmut II, the elegant Nusretiye Mosque commemorates the sultan's victory over the rebellious janissary troops (nusretiye means "victory"). The mosque was designed by the Armenian architect Krikor Balyan, whose descendants later also served as imperial architects. Balyan's stunning design was strongly influenced by European Baroque architecture, while retaining the signature Ottoman style.
