Like the christian sunday morning service, muslims have friday noon one. So, there is a crowd waits for you if you choose to visit this particular time. In addition, since it is a popular mosque, there are more guests than those of the others. (Its popularity is not because of its aesthetic value or such stuff but because of the... More

We walked here from the Anatolian civilization museum. It has some nice small shops in the arcade to browse. This was the third place we visited and we spent one hour here.

This mosque is built on the Temple of Augustus, and they have preserved 1 wall of the ancient temple. There are nice water features around the complex, and it is a very pleasant place to spend time.

If you are in Ankara, this is the place you should see first. Many other places which could be offered to you cannot be as real as this place.

This mosque is probably the oldest mosque in Ankara. Everyone should see it and the places around it. As Ankara does not have too many touristic places, that mosque deserves a few hours for paying a visit.

One of the more interesting sights in Ankara. Nothing spectacular but nice enough for a quick look. Plaza around mosque is OK though getting very kitsch. Temple of Augustus ruins nearby.

Was not sure if I had to go in the separate entrance but was guided there by an elderly man. I was directed downstairs to a large pillared and carpeted room with Islamic symbols on the wall and groups of women sitting talking or praying. There was nothing else to see. Having visited Istanbul where I went into all the... More
