This fine example of Seljukian architecture was purposely built with an asymmetrical style along with several Ottoman style elements, which are revealed in the turquoise and blue faience mosaics.

Magnificent mosque with beautifully decorated front door. Inside you will see giant columns brought from Ephesus and front yard with colonnade which in ancient times was covered providing a shadow. The entrance is free of charge, women are provided with covers and headscarfs. In front of the mosque there is a village style cafe good for siesta. From some points... More

It is a beautiful old mosque but still very active. (If you stay at the Akay Hotel you will get a wake up call!). Pleasant to walk in grounds, we had opportunity to see Imam calling to prayers in the courtyard. He was happy (enjoyed?) for the photo opportunity!

Coming to the garden in the early morning, was a magical time to soak up the peace and quiet which seemed to be accumulating over the centuries, and yet the place is still so full of life.

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
