Construction began in 1550 and took seven years to build.

It was almost destroyed by a fire in Istanbul 1660 and restored by architect Fossati, who altered the design into a baroque style thus damaging the original great work made by Mimar Sinan. Restored again to its original glory in the 19th century and after another fire, caused by the ignition of ammunition stored there during World War 1, not until 1956 was it restored again and this is what you see today, one of Istanbul’s most visited sites.
