Located in the heart of Selcuk, the Isa Bey Mosque was constructed in the late 1300s and is based on the Great Mosque of Damascus. It is one of the finest examples of Seljukian architecture and is unique in that it was purposely built with an asymmetrical style. The mosque is now both a place of worship and a tourist attraction.

Things to do in Ephesus and Selcuk tip: The mosque is close to St John’s Basilica and Ayasuluk Fortress so combine a visit to the three. Visitors are required to cover up and hair scarves and long garments are available at the mosque
