Kate M wanted to know whether it had 'any connection to Mimar Sinan, the Ottoman architect'; as far as I know, the architect was unknown - certainly I haven't been able to find anything associating him with it, but that doesn't mean there isn't anything associating the two.


  1. any connection to Mimar Sinan, the Ottoman architect?

  2. As far as I know, there isn't a connection with Mimar Sinan; the architect is unknown.

    Apparently, though, the stones for the mosque were recycled ones first used in the mausoleum of the first Serbian emperor, Dusan.
