9/28/2001 What a truly memorable experience it is to have visited this mosque when I did. Thats partly because of the rain but mostly because of the funeral I witnessed. This mosque holds a special place for me because of a legend that this mosque represents Sinans love for Sultan Suleymans daughter Princess Mihrimah who was married to Rustem Pasa at the time. This mosque is an architectural achevement for having 161 windows. Surely, it ranks high in the annals of fenestration. Mihrimah Mosque is featured in the PBS TV series, Building Big. They have a nice page on it in their site. This mosque is out by the walls. You can just about see it in the distance in one of my vista shots. Be sure not to confuse this Mihrimah Mosque with the one in Uskudar built in 1548.
3/31/2002 Luca: for me the Mirimah Camii is the best Sinan mosque; and the decoration... i have no words to describe!
7/10/2002 This mosque is not in Edirnekapi (European Side) but it is in Uskudar. I hope this might help the correction.
7/10/2002 OK, you did it. You confused it with the one in Uskudar. There is a Mihrimah Mosque in Uskudar (better known as Iskele Mosque) but this isn't it. They were both built by Sinan. This one was build 18 years after the one in Uskudar.

11/6/2002 it's brilliant, may Allah reward you if your a muslim, and if not may Allah give you hidahaya.
1/4/2003 Totally gorgious. Being in this mosque is feels like eternity...Also being a gift of love makes the mosque more impressive
2/21/2003 İts legend is really effective..And also its architecture is magic.I'm very pleased to visit this page.Good luck for your studies!
5/27/2003 Sinan was never in love with Mihrimah, and Ottomans never showed their love by building mosques. Keep in mind that Sinan built mosques on order of the Royal family or the top officials and with their money.
11/16/2003 11/16/03 This mosque is truly gorgious it kinda makes you want to be a muslim
11/17/2003 I recommend the Selemiye in Edirne.. also one of Sinan's wonders.
1/10/2004 Unfortunately, this mosque is vulnerable to an earthquake, needs extensive retrofit which will alter its architectural integrity.
2/5/2004 Well, the biggest threat is that skinny minaret. At least twice, it has crashed into the dome during an earthquake. You can still see the damage in another shot. go here

5/6/2012 Mihrumah means mihr( SUN) and mah (MOON).
Sinan carved his love on too sides of the city.
on 21 september and 23 march, when sun rises between minarets of iskele mosque, moon falls between minarets of Mihrimah mosque.

7/9/2012 Are you really that stpiud anon?Are you trying to claim that:"We are not going to be like animals . . . or to be like the homosexuals, God save us from that, you understand? We have to take the judgment, the judgment is to kill them." is equatable to what happened with Catholic Insight?
