Sometimes called the İskele (Dock) Camii, this mosque was designed by Mimar Sinan for Süleyman the Magnificent's daughter Mihrimah and built between 1547 and 1548. Look out for its attractive ablutions fountain in the traffic island and listen for the müezzin 's call to prayer if you're in Üsküdar around noon – he has one of the best voices in the city.
