Photographer's Note

Colorful mosque (Macedonian: Шарена Џамија; Albanian: Xhamia e Pashλs; Turkish: Alaca Cami; Serbian Šarena Džamija) was originally built in 1438. The architect behind the Šarena Džamija was Isak Bey.

Most mosques of the time had sultans, beys or pashas financing their constructions, but the Šarena Džamija, however, was financed by two sisters from Tetovo. As with many mosques, a hammam was built nearby across the river.

The site used to include an Inn as well as a bathhouse on the other side of the river. The current courtyard of the Šarena Džamija is filled with many flowers, a fountain, and a Tόrbe. The octagonal "tόrbe" houses the resting places of Hurshida and Mensure, the two sisters who financed the construction of the mosque in 1438.

Abdurrahman Pasha, a great enthusiast of art who was fond of Tetovo, reconstructed the Šarena Džamija in 1833.

In 1991, the Islamic Community in Tetovo built walls around the mosque in the typical classical Ottoman style.

In 2010, a renovation of the exterior paintings was completed and the faηade was reconstructed and preserved in 2011.

Šarena Džamija je izgrađena 1438. a arhitekta je bio Isak Beg.

Iako su džamije podizali najčešće age, begovi i sultani, ovu su podigle dve sestre iz Tetova: Hursida and Mensura. Turbe (osmougana građevina u dvorištu), je grob sestara. Par desetina metara od džamije nalaze se, sa druge strane reke Pene, hamam i han, nekada sastavni deo kompeksa džamije.

Abdurahman Paša, veliki dobrotvor i entuzijasta je 1833 izvršio obimnu rekonstrukciju džamije.

Zid oko džamije, u klasičnom Otomanskom stilu je podignut 1991.

Za razliku od prilično uređene džamije i njene okolina, Tetovo je opšti urbanistički i saobraćajni haos, orijent u punom svetlu. Nije prljavo, naprotiv, prilično čisto. Vožnja kroz grad je spora i naporna, propisi se slabo poštuju (sem semafora), vozi i staje gde ko hoće, ali nema ni nervoze ni problema.
