The Kara Ahmed Pasha Mosque or Gazi Ahmed Pasha Mosque is an Ottoman mosque near the city walls in Istanbul, Turkey. The Kara Ahmed Pasha Mosque was designed by Mimar Sinan and completed in around 1572. Kara Ahmed Pasha was a grand vizier of Suleiman the Magnificent who was executed by strangulation in 1555. The mosque was planned in around 1555 but only constructed between 1565 and 1571-1572 when the pasha had been full exonerated.
