Karadavut Pasha Mosque

Karadavut Pasha Mosque

The Karadavut Pasha Mosque is located in Üsküdar, one of the districts famous for its historical buildings on the Anatolian Side of Istanbul. Besides, it has an important place among 16th-century mosques in the Ottoman Empire.

In the records, the Karadavut Pasha Mosque was built by Davut Pasha, the grand vizier of the Ottoman Sultan II Bayezid. The mosque, which many fires and destructions destroyed like many buildings in its period, is rebuilt afterward. The person who rebuilt the sanctuary is the 30th Ottoman Sultan Mahmut II.

The mosque reconstruction, completed in 1868 on the same land, can be described as quite significant based on the region and period. It should be noted that it is referred to as "Hagia Sophia of Üsküdar Bazaar."

There is a balanced and straightforward interior under the mosque roof covered with two domes of relative sizes. The elegant decorations around the dome are among the most striking elements. The building with an entrance over the last congregation place between the mosque and the courtyard is equally aesthetic, with its single balcony and single minaret being modest. Karadavut Pasha Mosque, one of the best-known mosques of Üsküdar, is still active today.
