Small an very beautiful mosque of the Ottoman Era. Not to be missed. Typical building type of the late Era once quite common in all Balkan cities but this one has a finely decorated arches and walls.

A must visit if in Tirana. Really enjoyed exploring this city. There is so much to see and do even if you only have a couple of days.

Easy to walk past as it's right on Skanderbeg Square but stop and look inside. Because it's small a visit doesn't take long but is really worthwhile.

Beautiful insides, welcoming people. It's free so no reason not to swing by, take off your shoes and soak some culture up.

A really peaceful and amazing mosque, just in the center of Tirana. Free entrance and open for tourists also. The construction started 250 ys. ago by Molla Bey, it was finished 200 ys. ago. Nice decoration, frescoes outside and in the portico which depict trees, waterfalls and bridges - motifs rarely seen in Islamic art.

Although having some historical value, it was a small mosque. The decoration was interesting but was not that engaging. As with all mosques, you have to take off your shoes to enter.

I was not able to look inside this mosque because it is in active use by worshippers and I did not wish to disrespect them. The outside had some pretty painted decorations, probably fresco, and wooden elements.

After the dictatorship od Hoxla, only a few religious buildings still standing in Tirana pre-communist era time, this was left intact because the historical importance. if it would not be by this important fact, the Mosque is OK but nothing special
