The most significant Islamic structure in Bosnia and Herzegovina was built in 1531through the endowment of Ghazi Husrev-Bey, the Bosnian governor. The architectural design of Adžem Esir Alia in early Istanbul style placed the Bey's mosque in the very top of the Ottoman architecture of the 16th century.
The Bey's Mosque complex is comprised of a jet of water, religious school, ablution room with hot water (abdesthana); Ghazi Husrev-Bey's and Murat-Bey Tardić's mausoleums, cemetery, and an observatory (muvekithana). The mosque with a 45 meters tall minaret and Sahat-kula (clock tower), dominates the bazaar (čaršija).
The final, ad so far the largest restoration was carried out following the shelling from the Serbian held posts during the 1992-1995 war.
