Murat Paşa Mosque, Antalya

The Murat Paşa Mosque is an Ottoman mosque in the Muratpaşa borough of Antalya. It was commissioned by Grand Vizier Kuyucu Murad Pasha in 1570 and is covered with a high dome upon a ten-corner frame, with the inscriptions on its inner walls running all through the internal facade in a ribbon while presenting the most beautiful example of the Turkish-Seljuk art of calligraphy. The altar next to the marble pulpit worked with reliefs is a simple construction. The last congregation place is covered with three domes rising above pointed arches of colored stone on four round columns.
