The Murat Paşa Mosque (Turkish: Murat Paşa Camii) is an Ottoman mosque in the Muratpaşa borough of Antalya, Turkey. It was commissioned by Grand Vizier Kuyucu Murad Pasha in 1570 and is covered with a high dome upon a ten-corner frame, with the inscriptions on its inner walls running all through the internal facade in a ribbon while presenting the most beautiful example of the Turkish-Seljuk art of calligraphy. The altar next to the marble pulpit worked with reliefs is a simple construction. The last congregation place is covered with three domes rising above pointed arches of coloured stone on four round columns.
