Xhamia E Larme, Tetovo

(5/5 based on 55+ 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.

  • Financial support in the construction of mosques in the period where usually sultan, gentlemen, p Kaewsukhan this mosque while two sisters with the assistance of the Hurşide and Mensure Hanim 1438 in İshak Bey. Still, at that time the figure of the current Mosque is not people's minds today is very different from the mosque. The external and internal walls, colorful decorations have been used in the construction of more than 30,000 for eggs. I was amazed at the mosque.

  • I've never encountered a mosque with an interior like this. It looks as if it belongs somewhere in Florence. A fascinating example of the later Ottoman efforts to mimick European art and design. If you come upon this place, you have to try and gain entry to the interior, even if it means putting up with the grumpy old man who has the key.
  • The one of most beatiful mosques in the world, a wonderful emotions when you look at the paintings.
