Photographer's Note

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

Most mosques of the time had sultans, beys or pashas financing their constructions, but the arena Damija, 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 arena Damija is filled with many flowers, a fountain, and a Trbe. The octagonal "trbe" 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 arena Damija 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 fa蓷de was reconstructed and preserved in 2011.

arena Damija je izgrađena 1438. a arhitekta je bio Isak Beg.

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

Abdurahman Paa, veliki dobrotvor i entuzijasta je 1833 izvrio obimnu rekonstrukciju damije.

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

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