The Murat Pasa Mosque (Turkish: Murat Pasa Camii) is a mosque built in the Ottoman style of architecture in the Murat pasa precinct of Antalya, Turkey. It was authorized by Grand Vizier Kuyucu Murad Pasha in 1570 and is secured with a high vault upon a ten-corner edge. The architecture of the mosque involved acing the system of building extensive inward spaces which are to be limited by evidently lightweight but enormous arches, in order to bring about impeccable harmony between the internal and external premises, and in addition enunciated light and shadow. The featurerd Islamic religious construction modeling comprised of straightforward edifices with impressive designs, and was converted by the Ottomans through a dynamic building vocabulary of vaults, arches, semi arches and sections. The mosque was changed from being a confined and dull chamber with arabesque-secured dividers into a haven of beautiful and specialized equalization, refined sumptuousness and a touch of radiant transcendence. The engravings on its inward dividers running all through the interior front in a strip puts forth the most excellent illustration of the Turkish-Seljuk specialty of calligraphy.
The sacrificial table beside the marble podium worked with reliefs is a straightforward development of the era when it was built. The last gathering place is secured with three arches climbing above the pointed curves of coloured stone upon the four round sections.
