  • I enjoy visiting mosques, but this really has little to recommend it. It is unusually dark inside. Not particularly interesting.

  • In a cobbled street running to Kyrenia Harbour, this mosque is named after an Ottoman Governor who donated the land where it's built. It was built in the 1580’s, although some claim it was converted from a Lusignan warehouse. The cut stone rectangular construction has 3 main rooms and a single minaret and is still used today. Southeast of the mosque is the Hasan Kavizade Huseyn Efendi fountain, built in 1841. The northern face has 3 arches, typical of the Ottoman design of the time. In the middle arch there's a marble inscription crescent, a coat of arms and branch figures carved into the stonework.
  • In the heart of city center, Aga Cafer Pasha Mosque is breathetaking. It is very historical and easy to access. It is clean and very well cared for.
