Firuz Aǧa Camii

English:
Firuz Aga Mosque was constructed by Firuz Aga who was Chief-treasurer of Sultan Bayezid II. The mosque was a bigger yard before the extension of Divanyolu, was constructed in 1491 as it was shown at the tablet on its door. The script at the tablet was written by Sheikh Hamdullah Efendi. The mosque that is a typical small mosque with a single dome and a simple mixture of Bursa style has square plan. Four sconces were constructed at the upper part of four edges formed by the walls inside and therefore the dome was settled on an octagonal frame.

The mosque has no inner court. It was made up of face stone and the dome frame has 12 edges and it is flat. At each wall, there are two windows at the bottom and top. The depth of the narthex is 4.25 m and it has three domes. The column heading of this part is made up of drop stone. The main door is somewhat ribbed and it has a simple wiped frame. The edges of the door has round-like flat arch, and are made up of white and pink marble. On the arch there is a tablet of four-spaced in two lines and above this simple almonds are processed. At the center there is a rosette and at the sides there are two geometrical Mohammed script that are exactly similar to each other.

The single balcony minaret of Firuz Aga Mosque is on the left and the boot at the body is extremely short and chequered. The difference of dimension between the body and base is so few. The balcony and railing are in classical style. Firuz Aga's tomb does not exist in our day. The tomb was destructed with the command of Grand Vizier Kececizâde Fuad Pasha during the extension of Divanyolu, the marble coffin of Firuz Aga is located in front of the left wall where the minaret is present, and it is at the clearance. The cemetery of the mosque was totally removed.

Turkish:

Firuz Aǧa Cami, Sultan II.Beyazıt'ın Hazinedarbaşısı Firuz Aǧa tarafından
yaptırılmıştır. Divanyolu'nun genişletilmesinden önce daha büyük bir avlusu olan cami, kapısı üzerindeki yazıttan da anlaşılacaǧı, 1491 yılında yapılmıştır.
Kitabedeki yazı Şeyh Hamdullah Efendi'ye aittir. Tek kubbeli küçük camilerin tipik bir örneǧi ve Bursa üslubunun basit bir karışımı olan Cami, kare planlıdır. İçeride duvarların oluşturduğu dört köşenin yukarı kısımlarına dört bingi inşa edilmiş ve böylece oluşan sekiz köşeli kasnaǧın üzerine kubbe oturtulmuştur.


Caminin iç avlusu yoktur. Yapı kesme taştan olup, kubbe kasnağı 12 kenarlı ve basıktır. Her duvarda altlı ikişer pencere vardır. Son cemaat yerinin deriniǧi 4.25 m. ve üç kubbelidir Bu bölümün sütun başlıkları stalaktitlidir. Cümle kapısı dışarı biraz çıkıntılı olup, sade silmeli bir çerçeveye sahiptir. Kapının kenarları yuvarlağa oldukça yakın basık kemerli, beyaz ve pembe mermerden yapılmıştır. Kemer üstünde iki sıra, dört 'atırlık kitabe, onun da üzerinde sade bademler işlenmiştir. Tam ortada bir şemse, yanlarda ise birbirinin eşi iki geometrik Muhammed yazısı bulunmaktadır.

Firuz Aga Camisi'nin tek şerefeli minaresi sol tarafta olup, gövdeye geçen pabuç kısmı son derece kısa ve baklavalıdır. Gövde ve kaide arasındaki çap farkı çok azdır. Şerefe ve korkuluk klasik üsluptadır. Firuz Ağa'nın türbesi günümüzde yoktur, Türbe binası Divanyolu'nun genişletilmesi sırasında Sadrazam Keçecizâde Fuat Paşanın emriyle yıktırılmış,Sadrazam Ağa'nın mermer mezar sandukası minarenin bulunduǧu sol duvar önünde, açıklıkta durmaktadır. Caminin mezarlıǧı ise tamamen kaldırılmıştır.
