The mosque is one of the most fascinating buildings in the palace gardens of Schwetzingen. Not only did Elector Carl Theodor follow a fashionable trend of his time, he also portrayed himself as a cosmopolitan, tolerant ruler. A stroll through the prayer halls with their enchanting play between light and shadow is one of the highlights of a visit to the palace gardens. Wooden lattice work offers views of the inner courtyard and the surrounding Turkish Garden. Pavilions with powerful dome roofs and golden half-moons emphasize the centers of the longitudinal sides and corners of the corridors. Their walls are decorated with Arabic and German aphorisms.
