Ishakpasha Mosque

Ishakpasha Mosque, this late 15th-century mosque was built by the grand vizier of the same name and renovated in 1951. At one end of Akbiyik Street is the small Ishak Pasha Mosque that dates back to 1482 and is often disregarded although it is one of the oldest mosques in the city. It was built for Ishak Pasha who was the Grand Vizier to Mehmed II and Beyazid II. Over the road from here is a large hamam that has been allowed to crumble away although some parts of it have been integrated into the gardens of the Empress Zoe Hotel in Sultanahmet.
