Named for the Ottoman conqueror of Istanbul, this mosque was part of a large religious complex atop one of the city's many hills. Among the other original buildings in the complex were a school, library and hospital.

Fetih mosque is relatively popular with tourists but a little away from the tourist areas. This mosque has a grandness and power within it's architecture. From some angles it is reminiscent of the architecture of Masjid e Nabwi in Medina shareef.

A gem. A very large and beautiful mosque. In a very large garden. Do not miss to visit Fatih Sultan Mehmet Han's tomb. You will be amazed and shocked when you see the stand. He is the one shifting world to a new era...
