Although built by Mimar Sinan, the famous imperial architect, this mosque was named after the Ottoman admiral Sinan Paşa. It is one of the architect's earlier works, completed in 1555. The alternating red and white stripes are reminiscent of Mamluke-period architecture in Cairo and Damascus. Sinan Paşa Camii is located in Beyoğlu, close to Dolmabahçe Palace.
