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.

It is a very interesting old mosque. The original building was built long before it became a mosque. Many parts of the mosque has become ruins due to its age. The minaret is still there, but has significant degradation. There are many pillars built by...More

The mosque itself is very simple and peaceful, but plain when compared with other mosques. It is still in regular use and this should be respected. The courtyard is well preserved and mm laid out. It is good to combine this visit with the Temple...More

This mosque has several ancient parts that were used as building materials, from columns and capitals to random carved stones used in the walls. Inside it's pretty plain, so it wasn't my favorite mosque from my trip. The wooden ceiling and ancient columns were pretty,...More

This is a medieval (in places) mosque with a delapidated tower, a cool inner courtyard, and much of the original parts of the building intact. It's still used as a mosque. Shame about all the tat sellers right outside the entrance.

The architecture is lovely, and the courtyard garden is such a lovely idea as an addition to a place of worship.
