Tom of Barboros Hayrettin Pasha

Barbaros Hayrettin Pasha was appointed commander of the Ottoman navy by Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent in 1534. When he died in 1546, Barbaros Hayrettin Pasha was buried in the tomb constructed for him next to a madrasa in Beşiktaş as he had requested in his will. The tomb, which lies across from the Sinan Pasha Mosque, was built by the archiect Sinan.

The tomb was built near the mansion of Sinan; this mansion was pulled down to make room for the tomb of this most important Ottoman naval officer in 1541-1542. The tomb was constructed in the classcial Ottoman architectural style of the 16th century with hewn stones on an octogonal plan; the dome rests on an octagonal frome. Inside are also found the tombs of the captain Cafer Pasha, and Barbaros’ son and wife. Ower the casket is a banner made out of green silk on which a depiction of Zulfikar, the famous sword of the Caliph Ali ibn Abi Talib, has been worked.
