Mustafa Pasha's Mosque, Skopje

(4/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Overlooking the old bazaar and surrounded by a rose garden, Mustafa Pasha's Mosque serves as a significant religious monument from the Ottoman period in Macedonia. An Ottoman vizier, Mustafa Pasha, built the mosque with an open portico in 1492 (look for the inscription above the entrance). Notice the elaborate carvings on the wooden gate. The interior walls of the building are painted with gray floral motifs set against a blue background. A light green carpet and a gilded crystal chandelier hang under the giant dome. The tűrbe plated with white marble holds the grave of the Pasha and the lavishly decorated stone sarcophagus belongs to Umi, one of his daughters.

  • Good place but it can to be better
  • Mustafa Pasha Mosque is a mosque located in the Old Bazaar of Skopje, Macedonia. It stands on a plateau above the old bazaar and is one of the most beautiful Islamic buildings in Macedonia. It was built in 1492 by Mustafa Pasha, vizier on the court of Sultan Selim I. The mosque is elegant and intact, and no additions have been made through the years. The interior is beautiful, simple, and spacious. In the turbe next to the mosque, lies the daughter of Mustafa Pasha. The mosque has a rose garden and it offers fine views over Skopje's old bazaar. A five year renovation of the mosque, funded by the Turkish government, was completed in August 2011.
