Minarets are structures planned higher than the fundamental structure and developed for informing welcome for petition and for declarations.
Fatih Sultan Mehmed had made a wooden minaret more than one of the half vaults directly subsequent to changing over Hagia Sophia into a mosque. This minaret did not figure out how to achieve the present day. The block minaret at the southeast can be dated to Fatih Sultan Mehmed period or Beyazıd II period as far as its request. The minaret at the Bab-ı Humayun side is evaluated to be worked by Architect Sinan in Selim II period dependent on the comparability with the minarets of Selimiye Mosque in Edirne. Concerning the indistinguishable minarets at the southwest and northwest course, they are worked by Architect Sinan in Sultan Murat III period. With their 60 meters of tallness just as their thick and massif designs, they are finishing primary structure of Hagia Sophia. Different decorations are included these minarets at fixes did in fifteenth, sixteenth, and nineteenth hundreds of years mirroring the qualities of their periods.
