Murat Pasha Mosque

The Murat Paşa Mosque is an Ottoman mosque in the Muratpaşa borough of Antalya, Turkey.
It was commissioned by Murat Pasha of Karaman 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 façade 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 coloured stone on four round columns.
