The Yavuz Selim Mosque, also known as the Selim I Mosque (Turkish: Yavuz Selim Camii) is an Ottoman imperial mosque located top of the 5th Hill of Istanbul, Turkey, overlooking the Golden Horn. Its size and geographic position make it a familiar landmark on the Istanbul skyline.
Located in the garden behind the mosque and overlooking the Golden Horn is the turbe of Sultan Selim I. The building is externally octagonal, and has a porch decorated with panels of tiles of unique design.

A second octagonal turbe with a long inscription carved into the stonework of the exterior contains the tombs of four children of Suleiman the Magnificent. It dates from 1556, and is attributed to Mimar Sinan. The third turbe in the garden is that of Sultan Abdlmecid I, built shortly before his death in 1861.
