Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque, Sarajevo

4.6
An important Ottoman structure in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque represents the first mosque in the world to receive electricity in 1898. Built in 1532 by one of Turkey's prominent architects, the site still serves as one of the favorite meeting spots for local Muslims. Heavily damaged during the war in the 1990s, the mosque has been reconstructed, however with less decoration than before. See its stalactite ornaments below the 13 m (43 ft) wide dome and view the fountain in the yard that's still in use. Observe the differences in the colors of the interior as light streams through 51 windows along the carpet and highlights the Islamic art.

  • Very pleasant, historic mosque complex. The mosque itself can be visited. The interior is bright and airy and elaborately decorated. The complex also has a small cemetery, historic ablution fountain and 2 mausoleums. The first and still free public toilet is just outside the complex. As of this writing, the entry fee is 3KM or 5KM for a combo ticket (mosque + school or library) If this review was helpful, please click Like!
  • What a beautiful Mosque, you can see the influence of the Ottoman rule in this country when you visit the mosques, from architecture to the way people dress. The water fountain in the courtyard to perform ablution is also very pretty.

  • A clean and beautiful mosque. The reading of al-quran from the imam of melodious.
