architectanddesign The New Mosque (Yeni Cami) is located in #Eminönü neighborhood of #Istanbul, right next to the Spice Market and Galata Bridge at the entrance of the Golden Horn. The mosque was ordered by the Queen Mother (Safiye Sultan, mother of Mehmet III) but its construction lasted for 66 years between 1597-1663 because of interruptions such as financial problems, earthquakes, fires, and engineering problems in its foundations for being built just next to the water. During this long period, three different architects were in charge of the construction. Finally the construction was completed during the reign of Sultan Mehmet IV. The designers were Davut Ağa, Dalgıç Ahmed Paşa and Mustafa Ağa. 📸: @mc.atolye #architectanddesign
