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.

Built in the late 14th century it has a nice courtyard and a partial minaret that was not completely destroyed by earthquakes in the 17th century (the main minaret was destroyed). The mosque was built using materials from Ephesus and the Temple of Artemis.

A peaceful mosque. Wudu area is provided in the courtyard for both ladies and gents. We were welcomed by the imam who also has a gift shop next door.

We stoped here as part of a tour we did. Nothing out of this world but worth the visit. I recommend going up the stairs which are behind you as you enter to have the best view of the place

This may come from poor research and planning, but we had never heard about this, and sort of just stumbled upon it on our morning walk the first morning in town. It might have been the off-season in the off-year kickin in, but we had the place entirely to ourselves. And found usselves wondering a wee bit if we were... More

Welcomed to this Mosque by the Imam, a very special person, who showed us round, explained the meanings of everything inside and told us the history of the Mosque. It is old, beautiful, spiritual, everything you would want from a House of God. The courtyard and garden is also lovely, calm and simple. We were of course influenced in our... More

I had the pleasure of visiting this significant masjied built in 1357 and was impressed by the restorations that had already been accomplished. Also met the imaam of the establishment Imaam Mustafa and his assistant Imaam Ebrahim. This building is a great tourist attraction and a must see when in Selcuk.

The mosque was partially destroyed and rebuilt. It is a relatively simple mosque, with a nice courtyard. It is still in use. The best part was the Imam who greeted us. He was very pleasant and seemed to enjoy visitors. He gave us a quick tour and history of the mosque, then gave us cards with our names in calligraphy.

As part of a tour, we visited the Isabey (Isa Bey) Mosque in Selçuk. The mosque dates to the 14th century CE, although much of it was rebuilt in the 19th and late 20th centuries. Part of the original construction used large blocks of stone "recycled" from the Basilica of St. John, a 6th century Christian church that is nearby.... More
