Istanbul – Nuruosmaniye Social Complex

Just nearby the northern side of Grand Bazaar lays the Nuruosmaniye Social Complex.

The complex is composed by a madrasa, an imarethame (soup kitchen), a library, a tomb, a fountain and a sebil (public fountain).

This is the first mosque in Istanbul to be constructed in baroque style and it takes its name by Osman III.

It is lightened by 174 windows.

The main dome has a diameter of 26 meters.

It is so different from the other mosques that I fell in love with it.
