kadikoy iskele

This mosque was built during the reign of Sultan Mustafa III in 1760. It burned down compeletely in 1853. Eventually it was rebuilt in 1858 by Sultan Abdülmecid out of stone. The building reflects the influence of the Ottoman Baraque style. The primary school that was built next to the mosque no longer exists today. The architect of teh mosque was the head arhitect of the time, Mahmed Tahir Agha. The mosque is called İskele (Wharf ) Mosque because of the wharf that is near the mosque. However, due to land reclamation, the original relationship of the mosque to the sea has been lost. The area that was reclamimed from the sea carries a great deal of pedestrian and vehicle traffic in Kadikoy.
