Fevziye Religious and Social Complex

Fevziye Religious and Social Complex

Located in Hadji Hamza neighbourhood, Koca Mustafa Pasha, Fatih. From 1925 onwards, the complex was used as a mosque. After a fire in 1957, original timber dome structure and the roof was destroyed. A repairment was done partially in line with its original, after the demolition.

On the west wall of the plot, in front of the library, adjacent to the mosque, stands the Mahmoud 2nd Fountain. On the northeast corner of the plot, there is the building with selamlik rooms and dervish cells. The main gate and the windows line up between the main building and the fountain, which opens to the courtyard. In the center of the courtyard stands a small “sadirvan” and between the windows, inside the surrounding walls ablution taps are located. There is a water reservoir on the southwestern corner of the plot, and there are three treasured units called “tahtani”, connected to the courtyard via stairs, which apparently thought to be dated to Byzantine period. The one near to the northeast corner of the mosque- tevhidhane space was occupied by Hatice Hanım Fountain, second one located in the west was used as a cold-storage and third, which located on the southeast used as “cilehane”, for dervishes to take themselves off, for suffering.
