He was a tyrant man and he was murdered in 1568. The mosque is decorated on the Mamluk style of decoration. This is obvious in the ornamentation of the façade with bays of stalactite cornice and beautifully designed merlons. Like the Mamluk buildings, the mosque has one over three windows used for illuminating the interior plan and these windows are brightly colored till now. The Minaret of the mosque is the only thing that has the Ottoman style with cylindrical shaft of a conical cap. The exterior walls of the mosque were stripped with bright red and white colors but these stripes disappeared now. The interior plan of the mosque is very high and to reach the ablution fountains one should go through the main courtyard that has a rectangular shape and then walk in an aisle. The roof of the mosque is supported with four granite pillars. The ceiling also is beautifully ornamented with Kufic inscriptions for of some Quran verses in beautiful colors that still exist.
