Kapı Aǧası Mahmud Aǧa Camii

— Yapılışı: 1553 —

English:
The mosque that is situated near Kahirpapi in Fenerti Street is also known as "Aga Mosque." The architect of the mosque which was built for Agha Babu's-saade (gate of felicity) Mahmund Agha, is Mimar Sinan. Having built by Miramar Sinan makes it even more precious. Inscription of the mosque is in Persian and it is written on it that the mosque was built in 1553. Having burnt twice in the years 1766 and 1825, it was rebuilt yet there is nothing original left. Its walls are bonded out of face-stones in an ascending style. It has got a single minaret with a single balcony on its right side. Downstairs of the mosque is utilized as a depot. Although it was built with a madrasah and a children's school, they were both burnt in the fires. The benefactor Kapi Agasi Mahmut Aga is buried in the graveyard of the mosque.

Ahırkapı civarında Fenerli Sokakta bulunan cami "Ağa Camii" adıyla da anılır. Babü'ssaade Ağası Mahmud Ağa tarafından yaptırılan caminin mimarı Mimar Sinan'dır. Caminin Mimar Sinan tarafından yapılması camiye ayrı bir önem katar. Caminin kitabesi Farsça'dır. Kitabede caminin 1553 yılında yaptırıldığı yazılıdır. 1766 ve 1825 yıllarında yangın geçiren cami yeniden inşa edilmiş ve ilk yapıldığı hâli ile arasında bir ilgi kalmamıştır. Duvarları kesme taştan yapılmış olan cami fevkani olarak inşa edilmiştir, Sağ tarafında tek şerefeli minaresi vardır. Caminin alt kısmı depo olarak kullanılmaktadır. İlk yapıldığında medrese ve mektebe sahip iken daha sonra medresesi yanmıştır. Carmiyi yaptıran Kapı Ağası Mahmud Ağa caminin haziresinde gömülüdür.
