The Green (Yeşil) Mosque was commissioned by Sultan Mehmed I Çelebi.  The mosque was built between 1419–1421 by architect vezir Hacı İvaz Pasha.  The artists for the painted decorations were Ali bin Ilyas and Mehmed el Mecnun.  Following the earthquake in 1855, the building underwent an extensive renovation led by architect Léon Parvillée.   Parvillée managed to save the mosque but he lacked experience of the Seljukian and early Ottoman architecture.  He was also hampered by shortages of money and skilled labor.  The original decorations of the vaults and the walls were not restored.
