Abstract

Author(s): Nurcan YAZICI

Sinan Pahsa (circa 1520–1596), known as one of the important statesmen of the sixteenth century at the Ottoman history, carried out the conquest of Yemen and had been appointed to the grand viziership five times. Furthermore being a very wealthy man, he ordered the construction of many religious and commercial buildings, and established waqfs for each of them. As a patron he built many mosques in several territories of the Ottoman Empire, which are located in Istanbul, Bursa, Malatya, Thessalaniko, Cairo, Akka, Damascus, Haskoy, and Uskub. In this paper the role of Sinan Pasha as a patron of the Ottoman architecture is discussed and the mosques he had constructed are introduced.
