Hacı Bayram Mosque,

This mosque, in the Ulus quarter next to the Temple of Augustus, was built in the early 15th century in Seljuk style by an unknown architect.

The ladies that I met inside the mosque were so welcoming! Without speaking a word of English, old women gathered around me, kissed me, redid my headscarf that my friend awkwardly tied around my head, and took my by the hand to show me around the inside of this old mosque.
