Situated at the entrance to the Kaleici quarters. Beautiful coloured tiles above the windows. Take off your shoes (ladie's head scarfs on loan) and enter. Good for a moment's pause.

I have been there 3 or 4 times already but anytime I am in Antalya, I make sure that I visit this place. If you are in Antalya don't miss it because it is really worth to see it!!

How refreshing to sit and listen to the sounds of the call to prayer there is just something about it you do not get from the ringing of church bells we are normally used to

The Tekeli Mehmet Paşa Mosque is near the clock tower, and is one of the most important Ottoman mosques in the heart of Kaleiçi. It was built in the 18th century by the Beylerbey (Governor) Tekeli Mehmet Paşa. The main dome, which rises on a high rim, is supported by three semi domes, one each in the east, west, and south directions, as well as three domes on the northern side. The inside is beautifully decorated with delicate motifs, softly lit by the many dome windows. Colored tiles containing Koranic verses in taliq script (Arabic) decorate the pointed lunette windows and the base of the dome. The mosque was repaired extensively in 1886 and 1926. It is a peaceful place to pause for reflection after the hustle and bustle of Kaleiçi's shops and traffic. The mosque is beautifully lit at night. It is open daily with no entry fee, although a donation is appreciated. It is an active mosque, so may be closed during prayers. As a sign of respect, when visiting, modest clothing should be worn and shoes removed before entering. Scarves are available for loan to women without charge.

A very simple mosque in Kaleici. The interiors is sparcely decorated with black motifs. Nothing much to see. Scarfs are availble to cover your head at the door step.

Spent a friday morning in the courtyard. Very peaceful and tranquil. Prayed the friday prayer. Building structure is old stone which is appreciated by anyone who values their heritage.

You can't miss this mosque in Antalya. It is in the centre of town, beside the clock tower by the Kalekapısı tram stop. It was built at the end of the 16th C and consists of one main central dome and three smaller ones along the front entrance. Inside is very light, with minimal decoration, white walls and simple stained glass. Most elaborate thing is the clock showing the prayer times. Don't be fooled into paying to leave your shoes outside, it is free.
