Commissioned by Zeynep Asıme Sultan, the daughter of the Ottoman Sultan Ahmet III, this tiny mosque looks as though it is yet another Byzantine church converted into a mosque. This is not the case, for it was built from scratch in 1769 by the architect Mehmet Tahir Ağa, in an entirely Byzantine style. It is located between Hagia Sophia and Gülhane Park. When I visited on a snowy day in January 2010, the mosque was closed.
