The central part of the current Emperor's Mosque (Careva dzamija) was completed at around 1565 by Sultan Suleiman the Great on the site of an even earlier mosque.
The ensemble of the Emperor's Mosque, which is one of the most important mosques in Sarajevo, includes a large inner courtyard with sadrvan fountain, the Isa-bey hammam building, a graveyard and a reading room with library.
The Emperor's Mosque is situated on the left bank of the river Miljacka, just at the crossing of the streets Obala Isa-bega Ishakovica and Konak.

What I especially liked about Emperor's Mosque was it's graveyard with all the beautiful headstones! We didn't see much of the building itself, I just admired the wooden balconies.
For all of you who are interested in numbers: The mosque was built in 1566.
Emperor's mosque (Careva dzamija) was built 1566 in according to the order by Sultan Suleiman the Great. The oldest part of the mosque is the central section, to which two wings with arcades were added in 1800. In 1848 were both wings connected via a door to the central prayer area. The Isa Bey hammam were the oldest in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but were demolished at 1889 by fire and following flood, but two years later were rebuilt.
From the back of the mosque is located a small cemetery, where are burried viziers, muftis, sheiks, employees of the Emperor's mosque.
