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.

This place was nice to see and I enjoyed the solitude. No one else was there so I took time to meditate and pray (as a Christian) and enjoyed the courtyard area.

A beautiful old mosque, built in the 14th century, in the beautiful town of Selcuk. The garden is really wonderful. If you want you can also visit the mosque to pray.

The Mosque was down the road from our hotel, so again we were able to explore at our leisure. It is a beautiful tranquil oasis. We were also taken there on our guided tour but could spend time just sitting and absorbing the tranquility.

Definitely worth seeing, especially as it is a few steps away from St John's Basilica. Beautiful and intimate. Also has interesting small shops outside.

Really enjoyed visiting and praying in the ancient Mosque. Kids played and rested in the courtyard. A peaceful place for friday prayers. Lovely simple architecture but so tastefully done. Really enjoyed visiting.

Well I've seen many mosques in my lifetime, and this one is a very old, but well preserved one. It can't be compared to the later huge buildings as in Esfahan, but it has an architectural beauty of its own, and it is one of...More

Going to Isa Bey mosque would be worth your visit if you don't plan to visit any other mosques outside of Istanbul. It's a good example of how older mosques are structured and restored for future generations.

Try visiting on a Saturday afternoon and you may be able to witness the intersection of the old and the new, with local brides and grooms turning up near sunset to have their photos taken of their special day. The mosque has a peaceful atmosphere....More
