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.

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.

This old mosque includes elements of the nearby ancient city of Ephesus making it unique. You can easily visit it in 20 minutes max. I don't think it's a must-do, but it is interesting.

If you had never seen a mosque before it is really interesting. There is no admission fee and it is allowed to take pictures when it is out of the prayer time. The building is old and beautiful, that goes perfectly with a garden inside.

Both of us never visited a mosque before - we absolutely enjoyed it. It was really impressive, the mosque is beautiful. Make sure you also go for a walk around it :) If possible, try to avoid to get there just after lunch time, especially on a weekend :)

If you dont like history maybe you wouldnt interest in this mosque. The building was not so big, the dome was standard, but there was a lovely park in front of the mosque. One minaret is already gone. Nothing special beside the history. Not a photogenic mosque but wortg to visit if you have enough time. Definetely not the highlighted... More

This place was nice to see and I enjoyed the solitude. No one else was there so I took time to meditate and pray (as a Christian) and enjoyed the courtyard area.

A beautiful old mosque, built in the 14th century, in the beautiful town of Selcuk. The garden is really wonderful. If you want you can also visit the mosque to pray.
