“Hisar Mosque in Old Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

This historic Mosque is located in the midst of Old Town, easily accessible from Fauzipasa Boulevard, through eating area with quality eateries with outside seating. If you can resist smell of tasty kabob (variety of it), dishes, go straight to the Mosque and appreciate its history and architecture. I missed taking pictures of its interior.

It can be sait that it is one of the most interesting examples of Ottoman Islamic artwork. If you visit Izmir you also have to see this place.

“Hisar Cami”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

You do not want to visit this spot on Friday around lunch time because you will see lots of people for " Friday prays". Next to the mosque is the " Kizlar Agasi Hani ". There are lots of little shops for souvenirs. You can take a break and stop for some Turkish Coffee in the middle of the shops....

“Great place to pop in Whilst Shopping!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Located inside the Bazzar
Clean newly renovated and very cool inside!
whilst it can get very hot outside the inside of the mosque is beautiful peaceful and cool to relax for a couple of mins.
It is worth to have a 15min look inside
dont forget to wear a jacket if your wearing a single
do not enter if you have short shorts on and no scarf!
in respect to the people praying!
