Isa Bey mosque, Selcuk: 11 reviews and 26 photos

 
 

Isabey Mosque is the last memorial work of art left by those civilizations that came and went through Ephesus. This great mosque was built on the side of the hill where Ayasuluk Castle and St. John's Church are located. In early times Isabey Mosque attracted large crowds and was built between Christian and idolatrous centers of worship.

Because of its topographical situation the north and east faces were planted in the hillside. For this reason its stateliness and splendor are more noticeable on its western side. The building measures 51 by 57 m, nearly square. The great western door is decorated with stalactite-type figures and has an inscription of dedication.
