Hisorical Ortaköy Mosque, located in İstanbul’s Beşiktaş district, re-opened By Turkey’s Pirime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to worship on Friday after a restoration, which took three years rebuild.
Erdoğan said “The Ortaköy Mosque was built in 1853 by architect Nigoğayos Balyan who was an Armanian upon an order by Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid. You see how our ancestor had high tolerance for everyone ”

PM Erdoğan accompanied by Kadir Topbas, the Mayor of Istanbul, former EU Minister Egemen Bagış, Energy Minister Taner Yılmaz

Even though the current minarets are similar in style to Balyan’s design, the original minarets collapsed in1908. Later, the dome of the mosque was damaged and was replaced with a one reinforced with concrete. In later restorations, the ground floor of the building was made with concrete.
