I think this is the most beautiful mosque in Tarsus. It was built in 16th century. Also the around of this mosque is very beautiful with a 16th century built covered bazaar, a hammam and old turkish style coffee and tea houses. You can see real local life style of Tarsus here.

An absolutely unmissable mosque - another one of the long and narrow ones that characterise both Tarsus and Adana. Enjoy a drink at the pleasant nearby Kubbe Café afterwards

Clean and well protected building. According to the guide, recently it is used as a mosque; but it's original structure was a cathedral. You can see the architectural features of the both structures if you look at the building a bit carefully.

Mosque is nice. Went there for Friday prayers with my husband and was told there is no space for women on a Friday. Apparently when it’s busy they close the women’s section. I found that very upsetting. Ok if you are just going to sight see any other day of the week.

Beautiful mosque that still holds the essence of the past. Those who enjoy visiting historical sites will appreciate this place. Women should dress modestly and bring a headscarf along or you won't be able to enter. Right by the entrance theres a little market selling all sorts of Turkish trinkets. A good place for taking some great pictures too because of the architecture. This place is loved bylocals so if you visit during prayer times be sure not to disturb those praying.

The mosque was built in 1579. It was up until recently the hub of Tarsus. One of the minarets was changed into a clock tower in 1895.

A great mosque reminiscent of the Ottoman regime with the typical Ottoman Architecture and the fascinating and amazing Calligraphy which was an unforgettable experience.
