Overview

Gazi Husrev-beg's mosque was built in first half of sixteenth century by Gazi Husrev-beg, Bosnian Governor (sandzakbeg) and grandson of Sultan Bajezit II. It is one of the most monumental mosques built in the Ottoman period and is the center of religious life of Muslims in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The mosque is the part of vaqf (foundation) established by Gazi Husrev beg, which is still the heart of the old town of Sarajevo. During the Siege of Sarajevo in Bosnian war the vaqf complex was fired by more than thousand grenades but, thanks to its solid structure and two meter thick walls, the mosque survived. After the war it was thoroughly repaired using the original ornaments found on the walls.
