You'll enter the mosque through a wide, historic passageway, and it welcomes you with its wide cloister. The mosque is in the classical Ottoman style. Marbles brought from Marmara Island are worth seeing. The innovations in the ornaments are among the amazing details. The structure, supported by massive free-standing pillars, has a central dome. The sections of the muezzin's gathering place and pulpit, whose elegant craftsmanship stands out, can be shown among other elements of the mosque. At the both ends of the narthex there are two minarets.
