Konya Piripaşa Mahallesi’nde bulunan bu camiyi Yavuz Sultan Selim ve Kanuni Sultan Süleyman devri vezirlerinden Piri Mehmet Paşa 1523 yılında yaptırmıştır. 

Cami klasik Osmanlı mimarisi üslubunda yapılmıştır. Kare planlı olup, üzeri kubbe ile örtülmüştür. Caminin doğusunda üç kubbeli bir son cemaat yeri bulunmaktadır. Son cemaat yerinden ibadet mekânına giriş kapısı mermer söveli ve bezemelidir. Caminin mihrabı boyanmış ve özelliğini kaybetmiştir. Yanındaki minaresi taş kaide üzerine yuvarlak tuğla örülü ve tek şerefelidir. 

Caminin bitişiğinde Şeyh Siyavuş’a ait türbe bulunmaktadır. Doğusundaki Piri Paşa Medresesinden ise günümüze hiçbir iz gelememiştir.

This is an overview of Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.

The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.

Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!

When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.

Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.
