After the death of Prince Mehmed, Suleiman the Magnificient decided construction of a great mosque to his memory and the project was completed in 1548. The architect Sinan called the complex his apprentice work and it was his first imperial mosque on monumental scale. The mosque has central dome flanked by four semidomes supported by four pillers. At this mosque Sinan realized a perfect central domed with four semidomes centralized building. So surpassed Ayasofa and Beyaziy Mosque and realized Renaissance architects dream.
