Kırmızı Minare Mosque (Red Minaret Mosque) is a mosque in the Hasköy neighborhood of Beyoğlu, Istanbul, Turkey. It was probably built in 1591 by Kiremitçi Ahmet Agha and so is also known as the Kiremitçi Ahmet Agha Mosque. It received the name "Red Minaret" because of its red brick minaret. The building was restored in 1889 and 1994.
