Siyavuş Paşa Shrine

Architect Sinan, the chief architect whose name was printed in gold letters in the Ottoman architectural tradition, is known for his works spread throughout Istanbul. One of these works is the Siyavuş Paşa Shrine.

This shrine is located in Eyüp district. It is not known when it was built, but it is estimated to be built probably between 1582 and 1584. The date of Siyavuş Paşa's death is 1602, and his cost is also located in the mausoleum that he built earlier for his children.

The shrine has a sixteen-hexagonal plan. In the inner section, only half of the edges that can be seen from the outside. In Siyavuş Paşa Shrine, where there are two windows on each facade, the entrance door is located to the north of the structure. The shrine, which has a dome without a rim, also draws attention to the intensive use of marble. An Arabic inscription containing some details of the death of Siyavuş Paşa can be seen in the shrine. The spiritual environment also offers artistic ambience with tile and hand-drawn decorations. Additionally, another very beautiful structure, the Siyavuş Paşa fountain, can be seen on the courtyard wall.

During the first half of the 1900s, some parts of the shrine, which underwent restoration in various years, were renovated, including its decorations.
