  • When I’ve read Elif Shafak’s beautiful creation ‘Architects apprentice’ I couldn’t even think few years down the road I’d visit the house where he was born. The place is just walking distance from Agirnas yer alti sehri. According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, Sinan had either Armenian or Greek origin who eventually accepted Islam. The Chief Architect of Ottoman Empire and civil engineer for Sultans Suleiman the Magnificent, Selim II, and Murad III. He was responsible for the construction of more than 300 major structures and other more modest projects, such as schools. His apprentices would later design the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul and Stari Most in Mostar, and help design the Taj Mahal in the Mughal Empire. (Wiki)
