Built in the 14th century, this mosque is an excellent example of classical Ottoman architecture. Of special interest are the intricately carved wooden pulpit, and the three-tiered fountain.

Yes indeed, a mosque is open every day from early in the morning till late in the evening. On fridays it is normally busy because a lot of muslims go there on that day to pray.
