The Nuruosmaniye Complex is a complex in which Baroque style of Western architectural concept was mostly used and both ornamentation and handworks were excessively applied to it. Construction on the Nuruosmaniye Complex began in 1749 during the rule of Mahmud I and was completed by his brother and successor Osman III in 1755.

The Nuruosmaniye complex with two minarets, each of which has two sherefes (minaret balcony) and U-shaped courtyards with small covering domes forms a different style. It has acquired a different character in the hands of Ottoman masters by using Baroque and Roccoco ornaments as an achievement of unique artistic decorations.
