Tekelipaşa Mosque and Münferice Eulogy
Tekeli Mehmet Paşa Mosque named after its commissioner, Mehmet Paşa, was built at around the beginning of 16th century. Dressed stones were used throughout the mosque’s external structure. The mosque is situated at the inner part of Antalya fortress. The construction of Tekelipaşa mosque was based on the central dome and three supporting semi domes around it. Due to its architectural and aesthetic features which reflect the best examples of high-quality craftsmanship of the period, Tekeli Mehmet Paşa Mosque attracts great deal of attention. It has got three main doors located in north, west and east entrance. But the most distinct feature of the mosque, which makes it unique in the world of Islamic architecture when compared with other contemporary examples is the scripts of the famous literature of Islamic eulogy called ‘Münferice’ where located on both interior and exterior mosaic panels on window frames. The Münferice consists of 40 verses and is written in the perfect Talik form of Islamic calligraphy. The mosaic panels were decorated with flowering plants in semi stylistic and of Denden Rumi Hatai form of calligraphy. Muslims widely believe that Münferice Eulogy contains the greatest name of Allah which not only grants a positive response but also protects from all physical harms and spiritual damages. Besides, it has been recited as a key praying in religious practices.
