Burmalı Minare Cami

in Amasya

This Seljuk-era mosque was built between 1237 and 1247. Inside, the plain white, domed interior is offset by a very jazzy gold-coloured mihrab (niche indicating the direction of Mecca) framed by blue tiles. Outside, the single minaret with its spiral stone design is a later addition, having been added in the 17th century.
