This Mosque stands in front of the Monastiraki Station.
Tzistarakis (or Tsistarakis) was a governor (voivode) of Athens at the middle of the eighteenth century who constructed this Mosque. He brought to this mosque some columns from the Temple of Olympian Zeus.
As he did it without due permission of the Sultan he was heavily fined and chased out from his position. The minaret was destroyed after 1821. The Mosque once used as prison is now the Museum of Greek Poplar Art.
