Owner description: 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.

“Lovely”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

We could see the Isa Bey mosque from our rented cottage, but saved it until our last day. Outside it can be a bit noisy and crowded, and like many places suffers a bit from tourist shops and somewhat aggressive shoe-shine men, but within its courtyard it is peaceful. There are clear rules about visiting mosques posted at the entrance to the mosque itself: women should cover their heads and shoulders and wear modest skirts or trousers (some scarves are provided just inside the door), shoes should be removed by everyone, and there is a place to leave optional donations. No photos during prayer times, and in fact you are asked to wait respectfully outside. It is a lovely building, and I found it is light enough inside, even in the late afternoon, to photograph well without use of flash. Don't miss it.

“Save your time for the Blue Mosque in Istanbul”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

It's interesting for a few pictures, but hike up the hill to St. John's for a more interesting experience.

“Isabey Camii - interesting”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

An old mosque quite sparce inside but still an important site in Selcuk and worthy of a visit. Fabulous photos can be taken of the whole mosque from above in St. John's Church

“If you're in Konya it is on the "must" list....but I'd say only if you have time.”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

I've been in so many Mosques and Isa Bey felt like it was just "another" one. It is very small and ordinary. If you have a spare 10 minutes it's worth a visit, but I don't feel it would be worth going out of your way for.
