From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kılıç Ali Paşa Mosque

The Kılıç Ali Pasha Complex (Turkish: Kılıç Ali Paşa Külliyesi) is a group of buildings designed and built between 1580 and 1587 by Mimar Sinan, who at the time was in his 90s. The mosque itself was constructed in 1578-1580. It is named after Kılıç Ali Pasha.
It consists of a mosque, a medrese, a hamam, a türbe and a fountain. Originally, it had been on the coastline, but since the sea in front of it has been filled again, it is now surrounded by other buildings. The complex was built on the orders of the Kapudan-i Derya (Grand Admiral) Kılıç Ali Pasha. When the Pasha was told to build the complex on the sea for being the Chief Captain, he had the mosque built on the land reclaimed from the sea. The mosque of the complex is evaluated as a smaller version of Hagia Sophia.

The cache, a magnetic micro, is outside by the side entrance to the countyard of the mosque. DO NOT CHANGE THE HIDING SPOT!!!!!
