Inside a beautifulMosque

It's a lovely space and very beautiful. Pity there's not more information available to understand the history. But it's worth seeing

There is some beautiful artwork on the walls inside--very rare in mosques. They leet women come in with short sleeves and no scarf even though they had robes on the side.

Located in the center of Tirana near the Skanderberg Square. This is a unique mosque influenced by ottoman empire architecture. There's no entrance fee required but you just have to dressed properly to enter the mosque to respect the mosque.

A small historical mosque. Tolerant of visitors even during prayer. Ladies should remember to bring a scarf out of respect. Very interesting architecture and symbolic of the Ottoman repression of the past.

On the outside walls of the mosque in the portico are painted tile renditions of towns in Albania. These are rather pretty as are tiles of scrolled foliage inside. Otherwise there seems to be an empty feeling of uselessness about the place.

Located opposite the Sankerbeg square, although small, this old mosque built in the late eighteenth century exudes charm and character. The paintings very well preserved on the walls are beautiful and the dome is of a unique beauty. It is perhaps the oldest building in Tirana and one of the few religious buildings preserved after the destruction programmed in the... More

Very interesting to see the inside of the mosque. The women can pick out a shawl to cover their head and have to climb the stairs to the upper floor to view the mosque. The men go in downstairs.

This is my first mosque visit. Our tour guide took us here. The only requirement is to take your shoes off before walking on the carpet. Women do not need to worry about covering up to enter as it is more of a tourist destination than a religious place although I did see a few men praying. According to our... More
