Update: Tzistarakis Mosque

As I took some photographs of the interior of Tzistarakis Mosque (now a part of the Greek Folk Art Museum) in Monastiraki Square, I enriched the page dedicated to it.

Tzistarakis Mosque

The decoration of the mosque seemed quite ideosyncratic to me. The scarse remains of frescoe reminded me of that of the churches and palaces of the Western Europe. I would love to hear opnions from historians of the Islamic architecture.
