Here is the small complex of the medrese, religious school, and tomb of Sokollu Mehmet Paşa, built by Mimar Sinan in 1572. Grand Vizier for 15 years under 3 different sultans, Mehmet Paşa started his impressive military and political career after being taken as a youth from his home town in Bosnia to serve under the Ottoman devşirme system. He was a highly-regarded politician who was active until his demise when he was stabbed to death at the age of 73 by a crazed dervish.
