We have seen several mosques and this is as interesting as any. Be careful to observe prayer times. Many Muslims are praying and all the women are delegated to the back rooms. Architecturally very interesting.

This unique mosque is a hidden treasure in the middle of Old Town. Easy to reach from Hippodrome. Definitely worth giving a visit.
