Gazi Mehmet Pasha's Mosque [Bajrakli Xhamia]

Gazi Mehmet Pasha's Mosque
A large and elegant building with many windows, this mosque from 1561 lies directly behind the Albanian League Museum and forms a fantastic Ottoman-era ensemble together with the museum, a handful of period buildings across the street and the nearby hamam, which also belongs to this mosque. The calm gardens have benches and overlook the complex with a hexagonal mausoleum that was built for the founder and two schools. Inside, under the spacious dome are a marble mihrab and mimber.
