Isa Bey Mosque is a magnificent religious building of the Ottoman culture. Surrounded by palm trees, the walls of the building are decorated with Byzantine columns inside. I recommend visiting the mosque during azan. You shall understand the great size of the mosque from the inside.

There are 3 attractions in this part of Selcuk, which could be considered as 2nd grade, as 1st is certainly the Ephesus site. These include the St. John's Basilica, the Selcuk fortress up and this Mosque. The Isa Bey Mosque was built in 14c and has a very nice stone asymmetric architecture. It's on the way to the other two sights and therefore worth a short visit.

An ordinary mosque, nothing special. 1. If you have never been to a mosque, I recommend you to go to this mosque. 2. If yes, I don't really recommend as there are a lot of mosque a lot more beautiful than this not only interior but also exterior. The outside and inside are pretty modest. Nothing special.

Lovely place for you to understand more about the ancient architecture. Do remember to stop by the rows of shops outside - they are very friendly sellers and one of the reasons why I fell in love with the people of Turkey!
