Feel the spiritual atmoshere in Goey Mosque, a 15th century mosque. The structure suffered severe damage in an earthquake in the 18th century, and the reconstruction is still taking place. See the only original part of the mosque, the entrance hall or iwan, with its impressive blue tile work. Marvel at many inscriptions and arabesque patterns on the walls inside, and appreciate the striking mosaics. Since religious practices still take place here, you can also see ceremonies and prayer sessions.

  • A little damaged, but a great mosque. A lot of tiles on the walls and dome have fallen off, mainly due to the earthquake, but still this building is magnificent. Worth to see!  more »

  • This is a historic mosque still in use for religious purposes. Bar from tripod you may take your professional photography gear inside and take photos. It is open from 9 - 17 each day. Avoid going there on weekends.
  • Turquoise Of Islam is the title of this special mosque because of the blue color you can find original parts of the mosque.It was built during JahanShah Kara Koyunlu in 14656. In 1779 an earthquake damaged most of the mosque including it's special domes and for 150 years ruins were left there but a restoration project 1939-1977 was done on this historical site and made it like what today you can visit.
