‘Tetovo’s Painted Mosque - 2’


A second series about the Šarena Džamija in Tetovo, northwestern Macedonia.
My main picture is another outside view taken from a different spot.
In the WS a closer view of the walls and ceiling inside.

The Šarena Džamija was originally built in 1438 and rebuilt in 1833. With its elegant and elaborate decorations, it is one of the rare Ottoman-era historical structures in North Macedonia.

The mosque owes its name to the countless painted panels that cover the facades.
In English the name is often translated as ‘Painted Mosque’ or ‘Decorated Mosque’.
