Seyit Nizam Mosque

Seyit Nizam Mosque

Five times a day, Adhan voice echo in the skies of Istanbul to invite believers to pray. There is at least one mosque in almost every neighborhood of the city. Although a significant part of these mosques is new structures, the artifacts that have remained in existence for centuries are also very much. One of these works, Seyit Nizam mosque, is located in Zeytinburnu district.

First, Seyyid Nizameddin Efendi, who came from Baghdad during the time of Yavuz Sultan Selim, the Ottoman Sultan at the beginning of the 16th century, built a dervish lodge and raised students, and organized conversations. According to rumors, he had many oracles and many of them were realized.

After being a lodge for centuries, it was converted into a mosque in 1925. The structure, which underwent repair in the 1970s, was renovated between 2013-2014. After then the fountain was added in the 1980s and gained its present appearance. It is a simple and less ornamented structure.

The Tomb of Seyyid Nizameddin Efendi, known for his poems and qasidas and who died when he was sick in Istanbul in 1550, is next to the mosque. In the tomb, which stands out with its spiritual atmosphere, there are also chests of his son and sect elders.
