Laleli Complex is located at the intersection of Ordu and Fethi Bey Streets in Laleli Neighborhood, Eminönü District. It consists of a mosque and a medrese. The mosque of the complex has an inner court encircled by 18 domes. There is a beautiful fountain located in the inner court which has three entrances in three different directions.

The complex started to be built in the period of Sultan Mustafa III (1717-1774). Although it is precisely unknown who the architect of the complex was, most scholars attribute this monument to Mehmed Tahir Aga.
