Hisar Mosque

Izmir, one of the historical cities on the Aegean Sea coast of Turkey, is the 20th largest city in Turkey. It carries the traces of Ottoman rule, which lasted for about 600 years until the first quarter of the century, with all its depth in its streets and squares. In this context, the Mosque of Hisar, which is one of the prominent religious buildings in the city, is one of the most important locations in the city. The building, built in 1592, stands out as being the largest mosque in Izmir. It is also mentioned in the records that it was repaired at various periods in the 19. and 20. centuries. The main place of worship, covered by its large dome and the smaller domes around it, consists of the final communion place between the courtyard and the mosque. The interior offers a sophisticated look. On his door, the Turkish equivalent is " whoever enters is safe.” The inscription “ Men dehalehu kane amina " is found. There's no doubt it's a reassuring statement. The Hisar Mosque, a classic Ottoman mosque, attracts attention with calligraphy examples and decorations in its spacious interior. It is a valuable work which is praised for its general features on Turkish art. Hisar mosque is a diamond that brings the whole history of Izmir together with art and manual labor.
