Scenario Explanation

TAGS: - - - - - -

He is one of the greatest masters of architecture in the World history. He is very well known with classical Ottoman architectural style during the times of Sultans:”Kanuni Suleyman, Selim II, Murad III”. After working as a Janissary for 17 years, he was appointed as chief architect at 1538 until he died.
Sinan shaped the Ottoman Empire architecture in 16th century in so many directions that he was named ‘Great Sinan’, ‘Big Sinan’ by the public while he was still living. With the courtly works which he built in the era that he lived, he drove the actual panoramic view of Ottoman Turkish Istanbul. Sinan, himself is the owner of most of the works that belong to Ottoman Empire Classical era.
In his age, many statesmen queued up for getting their fountains, charitable acts, built by him. It’s quite unbelievable that Sinan lived long enough (nearly 100 years) to achieve these requisitions and had the chance to be eternal by the works that he did.
You can discover the cultural heritage which is given as a gift by Mimar Sinan to Istanbul and get a memory as great as Mimar Sinan.
We will visit the two of most beautiful works of Great Sinan in Istanbul: Süleymaniye Mosque, Sehzade Kulliyesi.
