The mosques are very similar to art galleries due to the architectural and decorative properties. The calligraphy art was profound and applied on specific spots following specific rules. The calligraphy at the mosques of Sinan the Architect was written by the famous calligraphists of the time, Ahmet Karahisari, Hasan Celebi, Demircikulu Yusuf and Hasan Üsküdari. In this article, the calligraphy in the mosques of Istanbul Sehzade (1544-1548), Süleymaniye (1550-1557) and Edirne Selimiye (1569-1575) is researched to reveal the arrangement of calligraphy art in Sinan's mosques. The writings, almost resembling jewelry, in the mosques of Sinan complement the architecture. We wish that these writings will be preserved for the future generations.
