Visitors can also tour the three mausoleums of the Sultan, a baptistery, fountains, and gardens which are all in close proximity.
Fountain (Sadirvan) for ritual ablutions is the typical example of Turkish rococo art. It was built in 1740. Colorful floral motives decorate the ceiling and the inside of the roof.
Hagia Sophia?s Baptistery was converted into an Ottoman tomb in 1639.
