The Buyuk Piyale Pasa Mosque was commissioned in 1573 by Piyale Pasa, the chief admiral of the Ottoman fleet, and was designed and built by the architect Sinan. Located in the north of Kasimpasa, on a site which at the the time was on the shores of the Golden Horn, it was designed as part of a greater mosque complex (Turkish: kulliye), which also included a madrassa, a dervish lodge, a primary school, a secondary school and a market; however none of these remain today.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
