The Nuruosmaniye Mosque (Turkish: Nuruosmaniye Camii) is an 18th-century Ottoman mosque located in the Çemberlitaş neighbourhood of Fatih district in Istanbul, Turkey. In 2016 it was inscribed in the Tentative list of World Heritage Sites in Turkey. The dome of the mosque is extremely distinct, and the fourth largest in the city of Istanbul, behind the Hagia Sophia, Süleymaniye Mosque, and Fatih Mosque, respectively. The Nuruosmaniye mosque is part of a larger religious complex, or Külliye, acting as a centre of culture, religion, and education for the neighborhood. The first imperial mosque of Istanbul that integrated both Baroque and neoclassical elements in its construction, Nuruosmaniye Mosque was built in the Ottoman Baroque style.
The mosque's muqarnas and its curved courtyard show the influence of the Baroque. The mosque is located on Istanbul's second hill, site of the mosque of Fatma Huton; that mosque was burned due to a fire. In Constantinople, the area of the Nurosmaniye Mosque was close to the Forum of Constantine, where the Column of Constantine (Turkish: Çemberlitaş Sütunu) still stands. Surrounding the mosque is Istanbul's Grand Bazaar (Turkish: Kapalıçarşı). After the construction of the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, the Nurosmaniye mosque was the first imperial mosque to be built in 100 years.

Located just outside one of the exits of the Grand bazaar. Built in 1755, it is considered one of the finest examples of mosques in Ottoman Baroque style. Its architecture and facade stands out as an unique construction in the city. The name literally means “the light of Osman”, as it has 174 windows allowing plenty of light inside the mosque.

It is considered one of the finest examples of mosques in Ottoman Baroque style. It was built by architects Simeon Kalfas (Greek architect) and Mustafa Ağa on one of the seven hills of Istanbul. The architect adopted Baroque architectural elements, the mosque is also distinctive with the absence of an ablution fountain. It was named Nuruosmaniye Mosque, meaning "The light of Osman". Nuruosmaniye Mosque is located near the entrance to the Grand Bazaar, and the historical Column of Constantine.

Nuruosmaniye Camii, İstanbul'da inşa edilmiş ilk barok özellikli camidir. Çemberlitaş semtinde, Kapalıçarşı girişinde yer alır. 1748-1755 yıllarında inşa edilmiştir 💮💮💮💮💮💮💮💮💮 I bought this sack coat that I'm wearing seven years ago second-hand. In five years I have spent only four and a half liras on clothes, underwear, slippers, and stockings. Frugality and Divine mercy and the resulting plenty have sufficed me. Thus, there are numerous things like these examples and numerous sorts of Divine blessings. The people of this village know most of them. But do not suppose I am mentioning them out of pride, I have been forced to, rather. But do not think they were due to my goodness. These instances of plenty were either bestowal to the sincere friends who have visited me, or a bestowal on account of service to the Qur'an, or an abundance and benefit resulting from frugality, or they have been sustenance for the four cats I have which recite the Divine Names "O Most Compassionate One! O Most Compassionate One!", which comes in the form of plenty and from which I benefit too. Yes, if you listen carefully to their mournful miaowings, you will understand that they are saying, "O Most Compassionate One! O Most Compassionate One!" We have arrived at the subject of cats and it has recalled the hen. I have a hen. This winter every day almost without exception she brought me an egg from the treasury of Mercy. Then one day she brought me two eggs and I was astonished. I asked my friends "How can this be?" They replied: "Perhaps it is a Divine gift." The hen also has a young chick she hatched in the summer. It started to lay at the beginning of Ramadan and continued for forty days. Neither I nor those who assist me have any doubt that, being both young, and in winter, and in Ramadan, this blessed situation was a Divine gift and bestowal. And whenever the mother stopped laying, it immediately started, not leaving me without eggs.

Beş senedir elbise, çamaşır, pabuç, çorap için dört buçuk lira ile idare ettim. Bereket-i iktisad ve rahmet-i İlahiye bana kâfi geldi. İşte şu numuneler gibi çok şeyler var ve bereket-i İlahiyenin çok cihetleri var. Bu köy halkı çoğunu bilirler. Fakat sakın bunları fahr için zikrediyorum zannetmeyiniz, belki mecbur oldum. Hem benim için iyiliğe bir medar olduğunu düşünmeyiniz. Bu bereketler, ya yanıma gelen hâlis dostlarıma ihsandır veya hizmet-i Kur'aniyeye bir ikramdır veya iktisadın bereketli bir menfaatıdır veyahut "Yâ Rahîm, Yâ Rahîm" ile zikreden ve yanımda bulunan dört kedinin rızıklarıdır ki, bereket suretinde gelir, ben de ondan istifade ederim. Evet hazîn mırmırlarını dikkatle dinlesen, "Yâ Rahîm, Yâ Rahîm" çektiklerini anlarsın. Mektubat - 67
