Worth a look. A walk from St John's basillica

Courtyard ruins of an old mosque that is still in use today. The courtyard holds many old pieces of rock with script and a lovely garden area.

The mosque was very nice, quiet, and well maintained. The courtyard is beautiful and the restorations have been very well done. The Imam is very sweet and great with kids. He have them a calligraphy paper with their names written in Arabic. The area surrounding is also very pretty to walk through.

very peaceful, well maintained with some old architecture and tombstones to view. The old imam is still there who runs a store at the bottom of the steps of the mosque. He provided a post card like with you name written in Arabic, he didn't want any money for this, a very nice gesture from a wonderful person

i like the mosque because it has a nice courtyard, very unlike other mosques in Turkey. it's nice to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquility of a religious place. The inside isn't too big, just kind of nice and quiet. much more enjoyable to visit than other popular yet busy, crowded mosques in the country.

This authentic 13 th century mosque built by the Anatolians is still functioning. The Imam will greet you, bless you, and offer you some tiles to purchase. All done in very good taste.. It may be one of the few times you are able to visit the interior of a mosque and it is beautiful and fascinating

The charming man met us outside and introduced himself as the imam. He showed us around and was obviously proud of the mosque and knew a lot about its history. He then took us to his stall outside and sold us some tiles that his son had painted lol. Oh well, we could afford it and they really were very... More
