Rustem Pasha Mosque was built with the participation of the famous architect Sinan in 1550-1561. Rustem Pasha was the son-in-law of Sultan Suleiman I, and also the grand vizier of the Ottoman Empire. The building of the mosque has a classical quadrangular shape, many windows, as well as galleries with marble columns.
The inside of the mosque, as well as the facade of the building, are decorated with tiles covered with beautiful and intricate ornamentation. The earthquake in 1999 left its mark on the mosque: the small domes surrounding the central dome are somewhat damaged.
