Photographer's Note

The Sokollu Mehmed Pasa Mosque is located along the shores of the Golden Horn, at the foot of the Unkapani Bridge, in Azapkapi, Istanbul. It was originally commissioned by Sokollu Mehmed, the Grand Vizier of Suleyman the Magnificent and Selim the Second, and was constructed by Mimar Sinan from 1577 - 1578 (985 AH). It is also known as the "Azapkapi," after the name of the gate in the Galata City Walls, formerly called "Porta di Sant' Antonio". Scholars believe that the mosque could have been commissioned by the wife of the Grand Vizier Sokollu Mehmed and daughter of Selim Khan, Ismihan Sultan.
