This fine example of Seljukian architecture was purposely built with an asymmetrical style along with several Ottoman style elements, which are revealed in the turquoise and blue faience mosaics.

Unique architecture

It is a unique mosque since it has an inner yard. We can not see inner yards in mosques. You should see it.

We managed to see this working mosque on our second attempt as we arrived on the first occasion just as a wedding was about to start.If you visit ST.Johns Basillica ypu will be over looking the mosque. Lady's need to cover up no shorts for the lads. There is a courtyard out side the mosque up some steps we suspect... More

We were lucky and had the place to ourselves! There are some stalls outside but nothing 'in your face'. The Iman came to speak to us and gave us a very brief tour, showed us some photos of him and Prince Charles & Camilla and then invited us to his stall outside! It was bigger than I expected with a...

Very beautiful, and preserved. One of the smaller attractions in the Selkuk area (the other is the Ephesus Complex). Worth a visit.

This mosque does not have one large dome. Instead it has two small domes in the center, and on either side of them, a peaked roof--it looks very different from the other turkish mosques I have seen. It is very stark inside, almost no tiles and simple beautiful unpainted wood ceilings. the courtyard was very peaceful and as I arrived... More

I have been to many mosques in Turkey and this was the saddest one of all. It is obviously underfunded. I understand extensive damage was done during past earthquakes. Once you've seen grand mosques, this little neglected one left me feeling sad. Trash in the courtyard garden, caretakers' tools left in the corner neglected and weathered.... Yet, inside the women's... More

Close to the Artemis site, this beautiful old mosque has a small beautiful lush green courtyard. When you are at selcuk you sure will visit ephesus and my best advise is to go from selcuk to ephesus and while on your return drop at the Artemis site. After visiting Artemis site just walk over to the Isa Bey Mosque and... More

Only a small mosque, however, gives a good example of the transition between Seljuk and Ottoman architecture. It was constructed in 1375, however fell into ruins for period of time. The people from Selcuk built a new mihrab which is still used today.. The centre courtyard has not been maintained.

Honored to be in this place when a Frenchman who was explaining the history of the mosque to his group, sang the call to prayer you hear 5 times a day all over the country. It provided a new perspective of the Muslim practice of prayer. Truly remarkable.

Lovely courtyard and building. Ladies should wear a scarf and long pants/skirt when going into the mosque out of respect.
