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.

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.

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

i stopped here as part of my tour and thought it was great. there is not a lot to see inside, but the architecture on the outside is pretty good. My tour guide knew a lot about the site and that made it interesting

Described as the first mosque in Turkey when I visited in September 2016. It was certainly very interesting, even more so when taking into consideration that it has been affected by earthquakes, effectively leading to the fall of one of the towers on the top of the mosque. Although one half of the mosque has been refurbished the other half... More
