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.

“Interesting and serene”
Reviewed 16 June 2008

The Isabey mosque is a fine example of Seljuk architecture built in 1375, and still a working mosque. It was quite different architecturally from the mosques we saw in Istanbul.

Women were required to have their shoulders and knees covered in order to enter. There was a non-carpeted area where we could stand just inside the mosque without removing our shoes. The interior was lovely: very sparsely decorated, with lots of space, air and white walls, which perfectly set off the intricate woodwork, tiles, and gorgeous prayer rugs overlapping across the wide expanse of floor.

The mosque was very interesting architecturally, and a great opportunity to learn a little about Islam from our local guide.
