The charming man met us outside and introduced himself as the imam. He showed us around and was obviously proud of the mosque and knew a lot about its history. He then took us to his stall outside and sold us some tiles that his son had painted lol. Oh well, we could afford it and they really were very... More

Isa Bey Mosque is a functioning mosque located just down the hill from the Basilica of St. John. It's good, not great, but it's free so it's worth a quick stop if you're already in the area. Spend no more than 15-30 mins here.

This is a small quiet place still in use as a mosque. Worth a brief visit if you are in the area already.

Being only built around 1375, it is surprising that so much has survived and been rebuilt if you look at my pic you can see where the stones have been used in other buildings

The Isabey Mosque, constructed in the late 14'th century, is one of the oldest and most impressive works of architectural art remaining from the Anatolian period. Its tranquil interiors and green surroundings are captivating. Its worth a visit.

Nice place to visit, lovely structure and great experience but be careful of the guy in the stall next to the entrance, he will offer you a free card as a gift but while you are in his shop he will get you to look at plagues and convince you to buy one, they are nice but definitely not worth...

We were herded into a small garden courtyard in the mosque where we were give a short history of the building. We were not allowed to enter the mosque but could look through the door. The Women had to put on a large not very clean head scarfs. Not impressed.
