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.

A very powerful site. As any place of faith world wide you attend to fulfill your spirit. Everyone takes something different from this particular place. Weather intellectually in history, Joy in the Aesthetic or A bond with their faith.

Old Mosque build from the old stones of Ephesus and the Temple of Artemis. Would rather have seen the original Temple..(which does not exist anymore)

We toured the Mosque with our guide for the day. We learned a lot, from both the old and the new. This is a very interesting site as the ancient remains are standing and new structures built on site. Very much worth the stop as this isn't just old (Euphesus), but a functioning Mosque

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
