Ferruh Kethüda Mosque Quick Guide

The Ferruh Kethüda Mosque is one of the lesser-known works of the Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan. It was commissioned in 1562 by Ferruh Ağa who was the kethüda or steward of Grand Vizier Semiz Ali Paşa. Inside, the mosque is a wide and thin space decorated from the floor to the ceiling with tiles that were made in the nearby Tekfur Saray. The hall here also used to be used for performances of whirling dervishes.
