Tekeli Mehmet Paşa Mosque

From the Wikipedia: The Tekeli Mehmet Paşa Mosque (Turkish: Tekeli Mehmet Paşa Camii) is a mosque in the city of Antalya, Turkey. Built in 18th century in the Kalekapisi district, the mosque is one of the most important Ottoman mosques in the city.

The main dome, which rises on a high rim, is supported by three semi domes, one each in the east, west, and south directions, as well as three domes on the northern side. There are tiled panels decorated with Koranic verses in taliq script on the pointed arch-formed lunettes of the windows on the northern façade of the mosque and inside it.

I have been informed the building may be earlier, that is: early 17th century.
