Directions to Sharena Djamija
Sharena Djamija is one of the most popular landmarks of Tetovo and arguably it's most important cultural and spiritual heritage.
The Word Sharena Djamija literally translated means the 'Colourful Mosque' and as soon as you gaze upon its facade it becomes clear why.
Sharena Djamija was built at the beginning of the Ottoman rule in Macedonia in 1438 by one of the best architects Isak Bey. The mosque was again reconstructed in 1833 by Abdurranham Pasha.
Unlike most mosques that include ceramic decorations, Sharena Djamija has floral decorations and multi-coloured external walls. The yard of Sharena Djamija is always meticulously maintained with freshly cut grass, beautiful flowers, fountain and traditionally a turbe.
Sharena Djamija is located close to the central area of Tetovo and on one of the main streets meaning it's close to plenty of other sights, shops and cafes.
Because Tetovo has infamous traffic jams you could leave your car parked on a paid parking lot and explore the area on foot.
