Fatih Mosque


In 1463, Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II, also known as Mehmet the Conqueror, commissioned the Fatih Mosque to be built on the site of the Church of the Holy Apostle. During the Byzantine period, the Church of the Holy Apostles was the most important church after the Hagia Sophia and the burial place of a number of Byzantine emperors including Constantine the Great. In 1766, the original mosque was severely damaged and was rebuilt in 1771 according to a different design.
