Üç Şerefeli Mosque

The Üç Şerefeli Mosque (Turkish: Üç Şerefeli Camii) is a 15th-century Ottoman mosque in Edirne, Turkey.

History

The Üç Şerefeli Mosque was commissioned by Ottoman sultan Murad II (1421–1444,1446– 1451), and built between 1438 and 1447. It is located in the historical center of the city, close to the Selimiye Mosque and Old Mosque. The name refers to unusual minaret with three balconies (Turkish: üç şerefeli).

The architect of the mosque is not known. It is built of Burgaz limestone with a main dome that is 24 m in diameter. When first built the dome was the largest in any Ottoman building. The mosque was severely damaged by fire in 1732 and by an earthquake in 1748 but was repaired on the order of Mahmut I.

The two blue and turquoise underglaze-painted tile panels in the tympana of the windows were probably produced by the same group of tilemakers who had decorated the Yeşil Mosque (1419–21) in Bursa where the tiles are signed as "the work of the masters of Tabriz" (ʿamal-i ustadan-i Tabriz). The running pattern of the Chinese influenced floral border tiles is similar to those in the small Muradiye Mosque in Edirne.

In the Şakaiki Numaniye Taş Köprü Zade relates how 'Certain accursed ones of no significance' were burnt to death by Mahmut Paşa who accidentally set fire to his beard in the process.

Farklı minareleri ve eşsiz güzellikteki kapılarıyla görülmeye değer.Ana kapısının üzerinde manası"Mümin camide denizdeki balık gibidir,münafık ise camide kafesteki kuş gibidir" olan yazı vardır.

Kusursuz el işçiliği ve düşünce inceliğiyle Osmanlının eşsiz eserlerinden bitanesi. Aynı zamanda Edirnede mutlaka uğranması gerekilen 3 önemli yerden bitanesi; Eski Cami, Selimiye ve Üç Şerefeli Camii

Selçukludan Osmanlı'ya geçiş camisi. Farklı farklı minareleri geniş ama kısa yapısı ile gerçekten farklı bir Osmanlı camii.

Selimiye icin Mimar Sinana esin oldugu soylenir. Sebebi de tek buyuk kubbe fikrine yakin olmasidir. Anadolu Selcuklu mimarisi ile Osmanli mimarisi arasindaki gecise ornek. Kapi iscilikleri gorulmeli.
