Owner description: The mosque as it stands today shows the architectural characteristics of late 17th century and 18th century mosques. The ceiling is made of ornamental wood, and floral and plant motifs can be found throughout.

We visited there after seeing the Julius column which is like a block away. It is much smaller than Kotecape Camii. It is nice to go there to have a feeling of history. Other than that, no much to see really.

I wandered over here from Gençlik Parkı late Friday afternoon at the end of March. On the way from Ulus Square you can take a detour through a plaza containing some local government buildings, in the middle of which is the Column of Julian, which commemorates the Emperor's visit to the Roman city of Ancyra in the fourth century BC.

You walk up some steep stairs to get to the table-like plateau on which the mosque sits. Attached to it at one end is the Temple of Augustus and Rome, famous for the lengthy inscription etched in it detailing (in the form of propaganda) the alleged great acts of the Emperor Augustus during his reign. The mosque, which was reputedly restored by the great Ottoman architect Sinan, presents an interesting contrast to the Roman ruins.

You also enjoy a nice view of the citadel mount to the southeast as well as the various steep hills and crags in the vicinity. Ankara is really a city of these mesa-like plateaus scattered about here and there and having substantial elevation gains.

Unfortunately, I couldn't enter the mosque and admire the Kütahya tiles inside. It was close to the Friday evening prayer and many of the faithful were entering the mosque to meditate and pray. It was pleasant to wander around the plaza outside, however, and enjoy the Roman temple and the groups of families milling about around it.

In contrast to Istanbul, Ankara does not have a lot of good old mosques. Haci Bayram Mosque is the only place in Ankara very Religious people can say that they "could get the spirit of true Islam".
