Description

Karagözbey Mosque is a mosque in the city of Mostar,Bosnia and Herzegovina. With its big dome and high minaret it is the largest in the region.  Karagözbey Mosque was built in 1554 or 1557 by Mehmed Bey Karagöz (Mehmed-beg Karađoz), the brother of Ottoman vizier Rüstem Pasha. The plans for the mosque were drawn up by famed Turkish architect, Mimar Sinan. The mosque was severely damaged during World War II, and faced near destruction during the Bosnian War in the early 1990s. However, Karagözbey Mosque, like the rest of Mostar, underwent extensive repairs between 2002 and 2004. The mosque was completely renovated, and reopened to the public in July 2004.
