The dome has a diameter of 15 metres, and the monument is the only remaining example in Bulgaria of a domed roof on a cubic base. The Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan was chief architect to the Sultan. It is the only working mosque in Sofia. Around 700 worshippers can fit into the mosque. Source : https://www.inyourpocket.com/sofia/banya-bashi-mosque_77185v
