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.

This is a medieval (in places) mosque with a delapidated tower, a cool inner courtyard, and much of the original parts of the building intact. It's still used as a mosque. Shame about all the tat sellers right outside the entrance.

The hot and busy town of Seljuk is home to a cool, quiet oasis that is the Isa Bey mosque - just up and over the hill past the St. John Basilica. Go into the courtyard and sit in the serenity - if you're lucky...More

C1 ( 2013.08.18 ) There was a very quietly mosque, so I felt my breath calm. This mosque was not big, and classical Islam mosque. If you tired for long trip, I think there was good place to rest.
