The Complex (Kulliye) was built in the first half of the 18th century (1726-1727), by Nevşehirli Damat İbrahim Pasha, the famous grand vizier of the Tulip Era. It consists of a mosque, a madrasa, a caravanserai, a primary school, a soup kitchen, a Turkish bath and two fountains.
In terms of the complex program, it is one of the last applications of the classical Ottoman kulliye program. Located on a sloping land, the mosque was built on a platform bounded by a madrasa primary school and a soup kitchen retaining wall. There are two fountains, one outside the south wall of the mosque courtyard and the other on the retaining wall at the corner of the primary school courtyard, with the mosque on the east, the primary school, the madrasah and the soup kitchen on the west, of this platform, which runs through Cami Cedid Street in the middle. The bath is on the north of this platform, on a sloping land.
İbrahim Pasha Mosque has a square planned sanctuary and the mihrab front unit has a rectangular plan that protrudes from the south wall. In the structure covered with a large dome, the transition to the dome was provided with squinches. The cover of the space in front of the mihrab protruding from the sanctuary is a half-mirror vault. It is located in the city center and is within walking distance.
