SINAN ROUTESTouring the works of Mimar (Architect) Sinan means exploring the 16th Century Ottoman world which is described in our political history as “An Ottoman Century”, and in architecture date as “The Age of Sinan”, and in a way, means touring that century.For those who wish to tour the works of Mimar Sinan, it is possible to set various routes based on the
types, names, sponsors, districts of the structures, or based on his architecting periods. The development of the architect in his art is commonly described with his apprentice, journeyman, and master periods. Nevertheless, there are objections against this in architecture history studies, and a classification of 1st, 2nd and 3rd periods is taken as basis. Considering such preferences and some definitions, it is possible to set various Sinan routes. We will recommend various lists, also based on the sponsors of the buildings for enthusiasts. Yet, the priority in narration when we get to the field, the list we will take as basis when we begin practicing the visiting schedule, shall be on districts and the structures on the route, particularly the exemplary ones. We wish you have pleasant historical journeys on Sinan’s development and architecture world.
