Sinan is credited as the architect of Istanbul's the Fatih Mosque and its complex, for Mehmed II.

Legend reports that Sinan, a Christian Greek, had failed to make the dome of the the Fatih mosque bigger than Hagia Sofia, so Mehmed II amputated the hand of the architect.

When the sultan submit to the judge's order, Sinan was so astounded with Muslim justice that he converted to Islam and pardoned the sultan.
