MURAT PASHA MOSQUE
The Market Mosque, or Murat Pasha Mosque, stands squarely in the centre of the carsija, the Old Bazaar area of Skopje. Its position at one of the key junctions means it is a structure you happen upon frequently whilst wandering the maze of little streets and alleyways.
It is thought that the first Mosque here was built before the 1689 fire which destroyed much of the area. Some gravestones in the graveyard date to the 1740s. The Mosque as it stands today was constructed between 1802 and 1803. The fountain outside was added in 1937.
