The Mosque of the Eunuchs is the largest mosque in the palace complex and is located in the Thrid Courtyard, on the left near the Harem exit after you enter through the Gate of Felicity. It is also one of the oldest constructions, dating from the 15th century during the reign of Mehmed II. The Sultan, the eunuchs and pages would come here to pray. The mosque is aligned in a diagonal line in the courtyard, in order to make the minbar face towards Mecca.
