It was commissioned by Murat Pasha of Karaman (Turkish: Karaman Beyi Murat Paşa) in 1570 and is covered with a high dome upon a ten-corner frame, with the inscriptions on its inner walls running all through the internal facade in a ribbon while presenting the most beautiful example of the Turkish-Seljuk art of calligraphy. The altar next to the marble pulpit worked with reliefs is a simple construction. The last congregation place is covered with three domes rising above pointed arches of coloured stone on four round columns.
