image The mosque of Sultan Murat II (1421-1451) is situated on one of the most dominant locations in Skopje.  It is placed on a hilly area which rises above the old part of the city.  This mosque ranks among the first mosques built in Skopje.  It dates back from 1436 and it is the oldest mosque among those that have been preserved to date.  In the past, next to the Sultan Murat mosque existed the madrasa and the imaret that ranked among the most famous objects of their kind in Skopje.  Around this compound today you will only notice remains from the madrasa and the mosque graveyard with two turbes:  the Sultan Bejan Turbe and the family cemetery of Ali pasha of Dagestan.To the north of the Sultan Murat mosque, inside the courtyard is found Sahat Kulla (the clock tower) which is a constituent part of the mosque compound.
