Xhamia E Larme, Tetovo

(5/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Originally built in 1438, Xhamia E Larme resembles a gingerbread house because of its colorful exterior. Instead of being decorated with ceramic tiles, the exterior and interior walls and ceilings are covered with rich floral and geometric ornamentation. Notice the illustration of the temple of the Prophet Muhammad, one of the few depictions of Mecca in Southeast Europe. During its 19th-century restoration by Abdurrahman Pasha, more than 30,000 eggs were used in preparation of the oil paint and glaze to decorate the colorful mosque. Two sisters from Tetovo who financed the building are buried in the turbe next to it. Put Xhamia E Larme into our Tetovo travel itinerary maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Tetovo.

  • Two sisters had built and unusual decorations, colors and elegant with the beauty of a magnificent mosque. Tiny and peaceful. There's also Hurşide and Mensure tomb of the ladies in the yard; He is also very humble and simple. a mosque. Surely "must see".

  • The most beautiful mosque, what in life I've seen, and I've seen them at least a few dozen in dozens of countries. From the outside it has the shape of Tatar mosques in the Crimea, but only the shape. The wall from the outside and from the inside painted beautiful contrasting colors. I'm not a connoisseur of art, so I'm not going to wymądrzał, I'll add only that it is a sight to behold. Around the well-kept garden and park.

  • This mosque is worth a visit. The Imam is very friendly and open provides information about everything. Just visit.
