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.

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.

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

The Isabey mosque is about a 5 minute walk from Basilica of St. John. It is an ancient mosque like fifty others in Turkey. We spent about 10 minutes looking it over.

The Mosque is a welcoming and interesting place to visit. It is best have a guide to explain the background and Muslim traditions, but that is not essential. The size and layout of the Mosque is interesting and overall this makes for a good visit.
