Kasim A a Mosque is a former Byzantine building converted into a
mosque by the Ottomans in Istanbul, Turkey. Neither surveying
during the last restoration nor medieval sources have made it
possible to find a satisfactory answer as to its origin and
possible dedication. It is probable that the small building was
part of the Byzantine monastery whose main church was the building
known in Ottoman Age as the Odalar Mosque, whose dedication is also
uncertain. The edifice is a minor example of Byzantine architecture
in Constantinople, and is important for historical reasons. The
Mosque lies in Istanbul, in the district of Fatih, in the
neighborhood (Turkish: Mahalle) of Salmatomruk, not far from
Edirnekap (the ancient Gate of Charisius), more or less halfway
between the Chora Church and the Fethiye Mosque, and about 100 m
Southwest of the remains of the Odalar Mosque.
