A very well maintained mosque! Fine paintings. Good that it was not destrouyed after 1967. Sure worth a visit.

This small mosque in the center of town was beautifully decorated inside and out. The paintings are very interesting. For me it was the prime attraction in Tirana.

One of the best preserved and most beautiful mosques from the Ottoman time. It is located just in the centre of Tirana. Really easy to visit.

Right in the heart of Tirana, this small mosque has some beautiful wall paintings, definitely worth going inside to see them.

Is a must see if you are in Tinara. Beautiful mosque from ottoman period, the only one left by that period in the city.

Maybe it is not dazzling. But it is an unique Ottoman mosque which wriggled out from the irreligious destruction of communism... just with the help of Allah (god). It is not hard to feel the history inside it.

Located in front of the Clock Tower, this 18th Century mosque was exquisite. Painted carvings around the outside of this small mosque was completely different from those seen elsewhere. The caretaker provided a warm welcome and I was glad to have made the stop. Closed under communist rule, the Mosque reopened in 1991 as a house of worship, without permission... More

Well worth a visit- this is a beautiful and tranquil place. We knocked on the door and were allowed to enter by a very obliging caretaker. It is obligatory to remove footwear when entering a mosque but it is also a mark of respect for women to cover their heads so take a scarf when you go.

Being a christian I am not often to be found in mosques. We arrived just after opening. The warden(?) helped us in and though barely speaking a few words in English explained us the rules and the most important things to know in the mosque. Which is nice and almost intimidating, but definitely not great and extraordinary like they say... More

We received a very warm welcome and were encouraged to explore the mosque and take photos. Gives you a great feeling as a non-Muslim to receive such a warm welcome. Strongly recommend visiting
