Miletus Ilyas Bey mosque

Miletus Ilyas Bey mosque

This mosque from 1404 sits a bit akwardly aside from all the Greek and Roman ruins. It is a nice place to relax after all the archeological enjoyments, there is a graveyard surrounding it (I am fond of graveyards, an underestimated source of cultural delights, and a good place to take it easy, even for the living).

We should rename this as the Hairy Mosque (Kýllý Cami, anyone?)
