Sinan The Architect :: The Molla Celebi Mosque, Findikli

This mosque was ordered by Kazasker (Chief civil and military Judge) Mehmet Yusuf Efendi. Here, the hexagonal plan finds its definitive form, with the positioning of the hexagon alone ensuring sufficient lateral space. The result is a powerful sense of unity. There is also a protruding mihrab niche covered by a semidome.
