Renowned for its simplistic beauty, the mosque boasts of refined Ottoman style and tradition. It is very close to the old town of the Mostar and is considered to be one of the oldest mosque of its time. The interiors are very affluent even if the decor has been kept to its minimum. Travelers are allowed to climb the minarets which has a splendid view of its surrounding. The mosque is unique and different from other mosques in the city and worth a stop for any traveler who wish to witness all the colors of Mostar.

I liked this one, mostar is full of mosks and minarets, and there is the "bigger " and more busy one, but for me this one feels more authentic. Entrt prices are reasonable and fair.
It is the main mosque of Herzegovina. From the inside, you will see amazing ornaments of ottoman architecture. The tower, that is called ''munara'' provides magnificient view. From it, you see the whole city. The mosque was built in 1567., by Mehmed-karađoz, as ''vakuf'', which means endowment. In Islam, a man receives award after death in three cases: if he has created something useful for the mankind, if he has a child that prays for him, and if he leaves the endowment. He has also put in the endowment ''medresa''(middle school) and a library.
Very beautiful, and worker told me much of history!!
Must see atraction! Great view from the tower/minerat. Highly recommended
Lovely mosque with great views from the top of the minaret (which you can climb for a fee). The attendant was very friendly and spent a lot of time telling us about how the mosque works.
