Ortaköy Mosque (Big Mecidiye Mosque)

Ortaköy Mosque is situated at waterside of the Ortaköy Pier square, one of the most beautiful locations on the Bosphorus. Built by Sultan Abdülmecid in 1854, its architect was Nikogos Balyan who designed it in neo- Baroque style. The wide, high windows let the ever-changing light reflections of the Bosphorus shine in the mosque.
