Built in the 14th century, this mosque is an excellent example of classical Ottoman architecture. Of special interest are the intricately carved wooden pulpit, and the three-tiered fountain.

It was pouring with rain,my shoes were saturated and the rest of me wasn't faring much better but I doggedly pushed on. It was prayer time when visitors are not allowed in Mosques. Fair enough.

This is the fifth most revered mosque in Islam and has a very open and inviting atmosphere. Women are not separated off from the men, children are allowed to run around and it feels very relaxed. The openness of the architecture encourages this freedom.

The light shining through the large central dome onto a fountain and small pool give this mosque an etherial quality. I didn't see an area screened off for women; instead I noticed women and men in open areas along the outer wall of the mosque praying alone.

This is mosques that requires a guide to explain the significance of the various Qur'anic calligraphy. It's a mosque that was built from 1396 to 1399. This mosque should be visited to experience it's dynamic ambience and spirituality.

Very unique and different from other mosques I've visited. I especially loved the Arabic caligraphy, which is throughout the mosque.
