Rustem Pasha Mosque & Complex The Rustem Pasha Mosque, located in modern-day Tekirdag, was constructed in the mid-sixteenth century by Grand Vizier Rüstem Pasha. Made of limestone, the mosque is known for its beautiful architectural design, which is attributed to Sinan's mastery. The mosque's entrance way is decorated with ivory on walnut wood and features geometric motifs on doorways. The Rustem Pasha Mosque and Complex includes a covered bazaar, madrasah, and library, and it is said to have once been a caravanserai and soup kitchen. The mosque itself is characterized by its simple floor plan, which includes a rectangular mihrab and plaster reliefs of flowers and wreaths on the dome. The main space features concave walls with openings along the drum that hold up the dome, showcasing their original bright colors. The single minaret is situated against the northeast wall and linked by an arched passage to the front door with an entrance porch on a southwestern corner. While the library, bath, and madrasah in the east are now in ruins, the covered bazaar with 6 domes on the west has been restored by the General Directorate for Foundations. Rustem Pasha's tomb, who had the mosque built, can be found in the Şehzade Mosque Garden in Istanbul. Additionally, a bazaar has been added to the side facing the Marmara Sea by the Prefect's Office as a new covered bazaar.
