The Rum Mehmet Pasa Mosque was commissioned in 1471 by Mehmed Pasa, the vizier of Fatih Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror. There may have been a Byzantine temple on the site previously. This was the first large mosque built by the Ottomans in uskudar. There are two rooms on each sides of its winged hall.
