‘Tetovo’s Painted Mosque - 3’


Yes, I really enjoyed my visit to the Šarena Džamija in Tetovo.

This time three pictures of its interior.
Even non-Muslims are allowed to visit the Šarena Džamija and take pictures. (For those who find this surprising, in the Maghreb countries this is very different)
I was kindly asked to leave as soon as the prayer service started. For which all understanding.

I was the only non-Muslim present in and around the mosque.
Tetovo isn’t exactly the most touristic city in North Macedonia.
The mosque was described in my guidebook as very beautiful and interesting. But I hadn't seen a single photo of it beforehand. So it was a very pleasant surprise on arrival.
