  • It is a curious building with an impressive dome. No longer religious but civil use, for exhibitions, events, etc.

  • If you ever find yourself in Trikala and think what you can do, kan'te a ride from the Mosque. It is not spectacular but at least is located very near the Museum Tsitsani (which is excellent), and you can go from there.

  • Art of the east, deep knowledge of engineering, not yet valued as deserved from the west, but yet well studied as well as presented from the city of Trikala!  more »

  • We sought out the mosque in Trikala and enjoyed looking around this interesting building from the outside and reading the information that was available. We were disappointed that we couldn't get inside. Trikala itself is worth a visit and is very pleasant.
  • This is the Osman Shah mosque or the Kursum mosque to describe its lead roof in Turkish. The mosque was designed and built by the renowned Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan between 1550 and 1560. Sinan's most famous work is Selimiye mosque in Erdine (modern day Turkey) recognised as a world heritage sight. The mosque is one of the best preserved examples of ottoman architecture in Greece and it is one of the few mosques in Greece that has never been converted to a church or a different purpose building throughout its existence. The only negative would be that the inside of the mosque is not easily visited, as visiting hours are quite erratic
  • Nice mosque, museum nice for a view.
  • Beautiful City
