İSKENDERPASHA MOSQUE
Inscription over the entrance gate of the mosque dates back to 1529 (936 in Islamic Calendar). There is also one more inscription informing the restoration in 1882 which gave the mosque its present appearance.

The originality of the mosque which underwent many repairs and was enlarged with additions at various times was damaged. The medrese standing in the courtyard was ruined, and the graveyard to the west was removed, leaving only the grave of İskender Pasha there.

The mosque features a high quality of stonework. Its minaret was built of bricks and coloured stones in a meshed style. The original plan of the mosque resembles that of the Yeşil Mosque (Green Mosque) in İznik. Probably, the area with three parts on the front side was changed in repairs, and it was covered with a hip roof. The last public hall leads to a section at the centre of which is a dome supported by two columns to the south and is surrounded with side walls. This area was covered with vaults on the east and west. Main prayer hall is topped with a dome res-ting on pendentives.

The prayer niche and the pulpit are made of marble, and are decorated with the 19th century ornamentations in baroque style with large leafed curling branches and cartouches. Within the mosque are hand drawn ornamentations.
