Overview

Although this beautiful religious landmark is regarded as a must see for people on pilgrimages, it has lost a little of it's popularity due to damage accrued during a few different earthquakes since it's original construction in 1562. Most of the damage has been fixed and it is still a magnificent site, located at one of the highest points of the city on the Byzantine walls of Istanbul. It was built for the daughter of Suleiman the Magnificent, Princess Mihrimah, which is where it gets its unique name. Visitors can stop in at anytime but avoid interrupting during prayer times.
