Sokollu Mehmet Pasha Complex

Hatay is a cultural treasure filled with the heritage of history. The contributions of the Ottoman Empire, which spanned three continents to this enormous treasure for thousands of years, are quite more. Because the ancient city is located in a key position both commercially and spiritually and of military importance. In this context, the Sokollu Mehmet Pasha Complex, built in Hatay between Istanbul and Hicaz on a religious route, which is an important commercial and Hajj Road, has a special significance. The complex is located in the payas district of the city. One of the most magnificent complexes in Anatolia, the building has Ottoman Bazaar, inn, hash house, juvenile school, madrasas, mosques. In these sections, each of which has functions within itself, the focus points such as education, worship, assistance to the needy, trade stand out. In the inscription of the structure, which has reached the present day very firmly, it is stated that the builder built and donated the complex purify himself from the sins of the world. The complex, which was built in the same years as Selimiye Mosque, which Mimar Sinan made in Edirne and called 'my mastery', draws attention with its elegance and visual details. Another work, a treasure of history. This complex, which offers signs of naïve architectural style, is among the most visited complex structures of Hatay today.

    Mimar Sinan’ın son eserlerinden hicaz yolu konaklama mekanlarından tarihçesini okuyarak yada dinleyerek gezmenizi tavsiye ederim.

    Tarih kokan bir mekan. Pek bilinmeyen ama çok kıymetli bir külliye. Külliye içerisinde kale ve 2. Selim Camii bulunmakta. Ayrıca cami bahçesinde 1355 yaşında olduğu tahmin edilen bir zeytin ağacı mevcut.
